A local resident was scammed out of $3620.00. The resident was told her computer was infected with a virus. The “company” offered to clean the computer of viruses for just $239.00 a year. The resident let the company take control of her computer and her banking information. The company told her they lost their license and had to return her money. They put $4800 into her bank account instead of the $480. The phone caller asked her to go to Walmart, get (8) $500 gift cards and read them the numbers. The card numbers were read to the caller. The initial $4800 “deposit” was actually the resident’s own money. The scammer had moved that money from the resident’s savings to her checking account to make it look like a deposit.
