SALISBURY - A Rowan County man didn't fall for a scam that could have cleaned out his bank account.
Instead, he reported it to the sheriff's office.
Tommie Taylor walked into post office in Faith to pick up his mail. He noticed an unusual letter that contained a check made out to him for $1277.43. There was also an explanation letter saying Taylor had been selected for a part-time job by a company called Digital Research.
The letter explained that the money went to cover expenses associated with the job.
Taylor told deputies that he had never heard of the company and felt like it was a scam.
