A woman shopping for student loans was taken in by an Internet scam, according to a Goldsboro police report. Shaniece Carissa, 26, of 225 Randall Lane, told investigators that she applied for a loan online. After filling out the application, Ms. Carissa was contacted and instructed to send $500 as an installment fee. She did and was then told send an additional $300 which she also did, using a prepaid debit card both times. She heard nothing further from the alleged dummy loan corporation and her attempts to contact the company failed. The investigation is still open.
