Lower Makefield residents should keep an eye out for scammers.

The Lower Makefield Police have responded to two calls in the past week of victims who may have lost thousands of dollars to fraud involving gift cards.

One victim told police yesterday they received a call telling them there was a problem with their bank account. The scammer told them to go out and purchase $6,000 worth of gift cards, which police say the victim did.

Another victim got a call last weekend from someone claiming to have lost their job. The scammer said they needed gift cards as well, and the victim purchased $8,500 worth and gave them personal information as well.
