FRAUD ALERT
Citizens in Winter Haven have started reporting that they have found either a tractor, camper or utility trailer for sale by a business known as Carrier Services Industries online.
One online ad states they are in affiliation with the City of Winter Haven and gives details on how to purchase the items. Those details involve wiring money to a location and then the item will be “released” to the citizen.
This is a fraud and citizens are warned to NOT fall for any such activity. Conducting business through an online venue can be tricky, so when in doubt double check and check again. Don’t fall for these scams that are sure to catch unsuspecting citizens offguard and result in losing your hard-earned money. When in doubt, call a trusted friend, family member and law enforcement to ensure you don’t fall for these scam artists.
