DUNWOODY, Ga. — A man reported he’d been defrauded in a transaction for a 55-inch television arranged on the Let Go app. He told police Aug. 13 that after agreeing to the deal, he met with the male seller at Perimeter Mall on Ashford Dunwoody Road. When he returned home, he opened the box and found the TV was cracked and missing the remote and cables that were promised to be included.
When he contacted the seller to meet again that same day, he agreed to meet at the mall once again. The suspect did not show up and the victim filed the police report.
His Snapchat application requested that he had the number of the seller into his account. The profile photo matched the appearance of the seller but was listed under a different name. This identity was confirmed on Facebook as well and the original name was confirmed false. Police confirmed to the victim that this was an incident of fraud and is liable for a civil dispute. Authorities are contacting the suspect for an exchange or return of the damaged property.
