A Craigslist sale turned into a scam when a woman tried to sell her gift cards for traveler's checks.
The seller agreed to meet the buyer in Roseville, exchanging her gift cards for traveler's checks from the buyer. Soon, however, the seller discovered the traveler's checks were fraudulent, according to Roseville police.
A police investigation revealed that within 20 minutes of the sale, the buyer had spent the seller's gift cards at a Roseville store. The officer identified those involved in the scam, arresting a 33-year-old Rocklin man and his alleged accomplice, a 32-year-old Carmichael woman on suspicion of forgery.
Also seized were the purchases from the gift cards, fake driver's licenses and credit cards.
