Local teacher falls for new scam, uses it as lesson for students

A scam gaining popularity is targeting people in the Capital Region selling items on marketplace sites.

The scam fooled one woman from Saratoga County—until she realized she was about to give hard-earned money to someone who might not even exist.

Sarah Hubbard from Saratoga County told NewsChannel 13 she was shocked that she missed the signs this was a scam, and if it can happen to her, it can happen to anyone.

Hubbard is a mom and a teacher at Guilderland High School.
