State police probe global con game


Concord – A Concord couple were small-time operators in a global cyberscam that swindled people who sell items on eBay, Craigslist and other popular online marketplaces, state police alleged yesterday.

Investigators now ask anyone who lost money in the alleged con game to come forward, saying they may have computer evidence and other documentation police need to track higher-ups in the West African-based scheme.

"If there are victims who already deposited checks and lost money, then we would like to speak to them," State Police Detective John C. Marasco said.
