The Swift Current City RCMP are on the lookout for a man potentially attempting to scam locals with home entertainment equipment.

Police were notified yesterday of the individual trying to sell the appliances out of the back of his Chrysler Pacifica that has an Alberta license A26 836.

The man alleges the equipment is listed at prices well below market value because its surplus. However, the RCMP caution the public as this is similar to the 'white van speaker scam' that results in people ending up with goods of lesser quality for highly inflated prices.

The RCMP did try and locate the individual and his van but were unable to and believe he may have left the area.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked by the Swift Current City RCMP to contact them at 306-778-4870.
