Sheriff Detectives arrest two on fake gold scam.
On Friday (10-27-17) two suspects were arrested by Walnut / Diamond Bar Station personnel, for participating in a fake gold scam. Station Detectives were given information by a citizen whom the two men were contacting, and telling that person that they had found some gold bars which they were selling at a cheap price. However, the gold they were selling was fake. Fortunately the Station Detectives were able to arrest these two suspects before they could prey on another one of our Walnut City residents. The two suspects are being held on twenty thousand dollars bail.
There are a lot of scams out there, like this gold scam, and designed to take as much money from you as possible. Please notify your local police agency if you or someone you know is contacted by someone offering gold, money or any other goods for sale at a cheap price. If it is an offer that seems too good to be true, it probably is!
