The Flagstaff Police Department is warning residents of ongoing scams that they have seen as of late. No one from the City of Flagstaff, Internal Revenue Service, or any government agency will request payment in gift cards. Any post through Craigslist that requires you to pay in gift cards should be a red flag. The funds on the cards can’t be refunded or stopped once the codes are provided. If you can’t meet the person face to face, it’s also likely to be a scam. If anyone has questions or concerns if you have run into one of the scams, contact Flagstaff Police.
