A woman trying to buy a cat off Craigslist told Rome police was scammed out of more than $750.
According to a Rome police report, the woman said she made an agreement with a man she knew through Craigslist and Facebook to pay $375 through Walmart money services for the cat.
The man then said he needed more money to ship the cat so the woman sent him an additional $384.50.
The woman said she has since researched online and discovered the shipping company, address and phone numbers used by the man were false.
The report did not state what kind of cat the woman was trying to buy for $375.
