A Paint Township woman was defrauded of $8,700 after she was sent two checks in the amount of $4,350 on two separate occasions and was advised to deposit the checks and then cash them to purchase Amazon pre-paid cards in order to purchase equipment for her employment sometime between April 26 and May 7.

The suspect contacted the victim via email about a work from home clerical opportunity with Packaging Corporation of America, according to state police.

Anyone having information is asked to contact Pennsylvania State Police in Somerset at 814-445-4104.
