Question:  If I lend someone something of value and they refuse to return it, what are my options?

Question:  
Recently I received a request through the mail from a company that I had never heard of wanting me to send money in order for them to send me a larger amount of money.  What are my options in this particular situation?

Answer: 
Remember the old saying "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is".  Never send money or give personal information to someone who you do not know.  The FBI has a web-site called www.ic3.gov.  This web-site is for internet and mail scams.  Please visit this site and submit your information.  Unfortunately the Greybull Police Department can do little in the way of preventing these scams.
