Redding Police say a tutor was scammed into paying hundreds of dollars to a person she believed was her client. The college student reported that she was asked to cash a $2,500 check, keeping her $600 tutor fee, and send the balance to the student so they could travel back to Redding. The money was sent and then the original check bounced. Redding Police say they don't believe the suspect lives in town. The investigation is ongoing.
