Scam Alert

Detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department’s Fraud unit would like to warn citizens about a new scam taking place in and around the Fayetteville area.


A group originating from Florida is selling Olin Ross stereo & home theater systems to consumers in the parking lots of businesses.  Consumers are being told that the “group” has an overstock of inventory and the company has authorized them to sell the equipment much cheaper than the normal retail. 


Once purchased, the buyer finds out that systems do not work and/or are very poor quality.


Another brand being sold is DaVinci.  In the past, the Police Department has received complaints regarding the DaVinci systems; most recently the complaints have involved the Olin Ross brands.


For additional information on the above mentioned scam, please contact Fraud Detectives at (910) 433-1856.
