A Fawn Grove man was scammed out of $1,500 after replying to an ad on Craigslist for a "secret shopper" job, police said.

The 36-year-old man was sent a check for $1,900 and told that $400 was his salary, state police said. He was instructed to return the remaining $1,500 to a P.O. box in Georgia, according to police.

The $1,900 check bounced when the man tried to cash it, troopers said, but by that time he'd already sent back $1,500.

It happened Oct. 31, according to a news release.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
