Deputies Warn of Possible Scheme in Logan and Boone

LOGAN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Logan County Sheriff's Deputies are warning about a possible scheme that could have serious financial consequences.

Deputies says they have received information that a woman is trying to sell a debit/credit card reader in the Chapmanville area of Logan County, as well as the Madison area of Boone County.

According to a news release, when the woman tries to sell the machine, she asks possible buyers for a credit card to show how the machine works. Deputies say the machine was presented as a prototype, but once the credit card was swiped the information was stored on the machine.

If you observe suspicious activity dealing with this scheme, deputies are asking you call the Logan County Sheriff’s Department at 304-792-8590.
