The Windham Police Department has received a number of complaints concerning unsolicited bank checks received in the mail.  The person receiving the check is instructed to cash the check and return a portion of the money via Western Union or other electronic means to an address out of state.  Generally, these mailings look very professional and may even be delivered by UPS or FedEx.  A number of residents in Windham have deposited these checks into their personal accounts only to find out that they are fraudulent.  If this happens to you and you are a Windham resident, please report this to the Windham Police Department by calling 892-2525.

Residents should also be aware of any phone call received from an area code (876). 876 Scam
