Turns out it wasn't real gold.

Turns out it wasn't real gold.

The Wal-Mart shopped was approached by a man in his 40's who told her he needed cash for legal expenses. He offered to sell her a gold bar for a fraction of its value. Another man stepped in, speaking to the authenticity of the gold bar. The man who approached her then said he would be willing to take any cash she had in her house for the gold bar.

She fell for it.

Police did not reveal how much money the two men received. But they issued some advice: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

They also released images of the suspects grabbed from surveillance video. Do you recognize them? Yes? Salem Police would like to hear from you: 503-588-6175.
