Being offered jewelry at a price too good to be true? It’s a scam
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Authorities are warning the public of a recent scam involving fake jewelry.
Crimestoppers and the Honolulu Police Department sent out a news release on Monday, saying they have received reports of individuals approaching numerous people across the island and asking them to purchase jewelry that seems to be authentic.
Authorities said the scammers are telling people they are in desperate need of cash and are willing to sacrifice the jewelry for a discounted price.
