Foley Police Alert the Public About Facebook Scam Involving Fake Gold Sales.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Foley, Alabama – In a recent turn of events, the Foley Police Department has taken swift action to inform the public about an arrest made on October 26, 2023, in response to concerns that more individuals may have fallen victim to a deceptive Facebook-based gold scam.

Dylan Thomas Jemison, a 20-year-old resident of Sylacauga, Alabama, is now facing one count of theft by deception. Jemison’s alleged fraudulent activities revolve around the sale of counterfeit 1-ounce gold bars to a local resident, who parted with a substantial amount of money for what they believed to be genuine gold. These fake gold bars, cunningly promoted by Jemison on Facebook Marketplace, bear the deceptive appearance and packaging of real gold, even managing to pass the scrutiny of authenticity tests employed by many experienced individuals. However, the arrest of Jemison revealed the extent of the deception, as he was found in possession of numerous additional counterfeit gold pieces, hinting at the possibility that he had defrauded others through his illicit scheme.

If you are one of those who have purchased “gold” from Dylan Jemison or anything bearing a resemblance to the images displayed, it is imperative that you take immediate action to have these items authenticated. Furthermore, if you suspect that you may have fallen prey to fake gold sales, whether from Jemison or any other seller, the Foley Police Department strongly urges you to promptly report the incident to your local authorities. The Foley Police Department is determined to protect the public from falling victim to scams of this nature and is actively seeking out additional potential victims of the alleged scammer.

    A couple of months ago, my friend and I were at an outlet mall in Denver, Colorado. We had just parked when a family in a black SUV, claiming to be from Dubai, approached us in a bit of a pickle. They said they had lost their wallet, passports, and had no ID. The driver, who was sporting a bunch of gold jewelry, asked if we could give them $500 in exchange for his bling so they could afford a motel.
    My friend felt sympathetic and handed them $20, but they kept pushing for more and even wanted to take us to an ATM. That’s when we decided to make a quick exit and leave the situation behind.

      There were several signs that this situation was likely a scam. First off, it’s a common scam, and the jewelry they were offering was clearly fake. Additionally, the idea of selling valuable jewelry at a significant loss just to afford a motel didn’t make sense.
      Their claim of being from Dubai, a city known for its affluence, was a clear attempt to manipulate our perception. Requesting $500 in cash from one person seemed excessive and played on the victim’s potential greed.
      In reality, credit card companies like Amex offer emergency hotel arrangements and guarantees for those who’ve lost everything. Family or friends could also wire money in a genuine emergency, and contacting their country’s embassy should have been the logical course of action.
