On Sunday, October 14th, 2018, a commercial business in the 200 block of Jacksonville Road reported they were the victim of an elaborate fraud scam. The company took an order for $17,500 worth of gas detectors which they subsequently shipped to the purchaser who they believed was a college university. The purchase was a scam and the detectors were not ordered by the university. The matter is currently under investigation and it appears the scam has affected many other businesses across the country.
