If it sounds too good to be true, It probably is. That message comes from the Columbia Township Police, warning you about two different scams.
In the first scam, a con artist offers college grants, but only if the victim provides a bank account number. Then the thief draws funds from the victim's account.
The second scam is an email scam. It's a fictitious business situation that asks people to cash checks, only the checks turn out to be fake.
A common sense reminder; never give out your personal information to anyone over the phone or Internet.
