Police: Craigslist scams target locals


The manager said that the agency does not run its listings on Craigslist.

Police in Marblehead received word of another type of scam on Monday, when a Haley Road woman reported at 12:36 p.m. that she had received a phone call from somebody who claimed to be her grandson, who said he was “stuck in a prison in the Dominican Republic and that she should wire $1,500 to them.”

Police wrote: “She told them to call their mother and hung up on them.”
