Family warns of fake money after boy ripped off
A Fresno family is now sharing its story in hopes others won’t get ripped off, too.
"You shouldn't steal from anybody, especially kids," said Sammy Sierra.
The eight-year-old boy was selling a PS Vita personal gaming unit and some games on the app known as "LetGo."
Sammy and his mom made arrangements to sell them in Southeast Fresno.
A man paid Sammy with a100 dollar bill.
It was rolled up.
Sammy later realized, it was a bogus bill.
He's now out the cash and the PS Vita.
LetGo suggests people carry out transactions in front of a police station.
If that's not possible, do it at a public place that has a lot of people around, and has surveillance cameras.
