OSAGE COUNTY (KSNT) – The Osage City Police Department has received reports of a scammer claiming to sell items on Facebook.

A post in the Osage County news and information Facebook group listed items that needed to be sold due to a move. Some of which included a fridge, couch and washing machines.

When people paid for the items using online banking, they were given a location to pick the item up. Police say the locations given to buyers were fake and there was no item to pick up.
