scamFARMINGTON TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Police say two local women lost over $1,000.00 in an online dog scam.

Around 7:45 p.m. on February 12 Marienville-based State Police received a report of theft in Farmington Township, Clarion County, related to an internet scam.

Police say two known victims, a Vowinckel woman and a Leeper woman, sent a combined total of $1,080.00 for the purchase of two dogs, but no dog was delivered to either victim.
