Area police are warning residents that they should be alert to a mail scam. The warning comes after a business in the area received mail from Africa. A local business gave the mail, which was a letter that was in a striped envelope and from Nigeria, to Galesburg police. Authorities say that the letter advises that a family member has died and left a large amount of money to the recipient and then asks the recipient to deposit money into an account so that the full amount of money can be sent to the recipient. If an area resident or business gets such a letter or e-mail it is a scam that is designed to con money from the recipient.
