**Scam Alert**

          On May 26th at approximately 3:35pm, a man entered a local Bank and approached the Teller. He was a Hispanic male, mid to late 30's, 5' 1" to 5' 2" in height. Wearing A blue t-shirt, blue jeans and dark blue baseball cap. He gave the teller a stack of $50.00 bills and with broken English stated he wanted to exchange them for $100.00 bills. The teller counted the stack of $50.00 bills and came up with a total of $2900.00. The teller then went to the vault to retrieve $3000.00 in $100.00 bills. Upon returning to the counter, the Hispanic male stated he wanted the $100.00 bills in Canadian currency. The teller advised him that they did not have any Canadian currency. The teller then took back the $100.00 bills and returned the stack of $50.00 bills to the Hispanic male. He then asked a few questions of where he could get Canadian currency and what other Banks were in town. He then handed the stack of $50.00 bills back to the teller and stated he would take the $100.00 bills. After the exchange was made and the Hispanic male left the Bank, the teller thought the stack felt "light" and recounted the stack of $50.00 bills and found that there was now only $1850.00 in the stack that began as $2900.00. The Hispanic male by then had disappeared down the street on foot.
