Guitar teacher on Madison’s on Southwest Side doesn’t fall for Craigslist scam attempt | Crime

A Madison guitar teacher was too smart for a “mother” looking for lessons for her son Tuesday, Madison police said Thursday.

A 21-year-old Southwest Side Madison man reported that a scammer wanted him to wire a  money through Wal-Mart after he was sent a check for guitar lessons for a son, “Kelvin,” that was more than the cost, said Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain. 

But the man knew it was a fraud and stopped communicating with the scammer, according to police.
