The Cowley County Sheriff’s Office is warning locals about a Facebook Marketplace scam.

A 2003 Toyota Tacoma SR5 is showing up in multiple locations on the marketplace and the Sheriff’s Office is aware of at least one victim who lost their money in purchasing Gift Cards to buy the pickup.

Cowley County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind the public of these three things:

  1. If it’s too good to be true, it’s probably a scam.
  2. Gift cards can’t be tracked.
  3. Best practice is to buy local and face-to-face.
