Money Scam in Lafayette
A money scam has emerged again in Lafayette. On April 21, 2011, at approximately 12:15 pm, a victim was approached by two black females outside of a business in the 3500 block of Ambassador Caffery Parkway. One of the suspects questioned whether the victim was able to get $1000 in cash. The suspects advised the victim that they could take the $1000’s and return later to give the victim back $4000.

The suspects never returned to meet with the victim.
