Five defrauded in Letgo scam

Suffolk County Police Seventh Squad detectives are investigating five incidents since August during which up to three males stole money from people who were attempting to buy or sell a phone on the Letgo app.

During the first incident, the victim arranged to buy a cell phone from someone outside 156 Mayfield Drive in Mastic Beach on Aug. 16 at approximately 10 p.m. The suspect took the phone and told the victim he would return. The suspect fled into the rear yard and never returned with money.

During the second incident, two victims were waiting in a vehicle outside 156 Mayfield Drive on Nov. 9 at 8:10 p.m., when two suspects arrived and approached the victim’s car. The suspects showed the victims a phone, then displayed a knife and stole money.

Approximately three weeks later, a man arranged to buy a cell phone from someone outside 156 Mayfield Drive on Nov. 30 just before midnight. The suspect showed the victim a cell phone and accepted cash. The suspect told the victim he had to get a SIM card and fled to the rear of the property and never returned with the phone.

During the fourth incident, a victim agreed to meet someone to purchase a cell phone on Mastic Road on Dec. 8 and three men forcibly stole money from the victim and fled on foot.

The fifth incident occurred on Dec. 31 at the Mastic-Shirley LIRR station. The victim gave the suspect money and was pushed to the ground. When the victim attempted to follow the suspect, a second man threatened to shoot him.
