Franklin man loses $3,800 in check scam

A Franklin man lost $3,800 in a scam, police said.

The man received an email in July from someone claiming to be the hiring manager for a brewery company and promising to pay the man $300 weekly if he advertised their products with vehicle wrap on his car. The man received what he believed was a real check for $3,850, and he took the check to a bank, where employees said they also believed it was real, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.
