If somebody calls you and says they've got a great deal on TVs, but you have to drive to another state, think twice

Scammer, allegedlyNatick Police report somebody from Connecticut was separated from $3,400 in a scam at the Natick Mall.

According to police, the victim got a phone call and was offered a great deal on four TVs - but only at the Natick Sears:

Person drove to Natick and met in parking lot with female shown in grey shirt claiming she was a Sears employee. She gave him a fake Sears bill of lading for four TV's in exchange for $3400 cash. She then walked into the store and told him to wait for the TV's to be delivered to his vehicle. TV's never came.

Well, you have to hand it to the criminal here. It's not easy to find The Most Gullible Person in New England, but they seem to have done it. Hats off to them. (Also, who the hell buys 4 TVs at the same time?)
