La Grande Police are warning today, of a scam that has been making the rounds locally over the past couple of weeks. They say someone has been paying for goods and services with “gold” rings in lieu of cash or credit. They claim not to have their wallet… saying it was lost, stolen, they forgot it, among other excuses, then they ask the business if they will take a gold ring in payment. But the rings are not gold and have little to no value. If you have been connedc, contact either the La Grande Police Department or Union County Sheriff’s Office.
