The Christian County Sheriff’s Office reported that a scammer stole $30,000 from a Christian County resident. Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp explains how the scammers were able to get into the resident’s computer.
After that, they were able to steal thousands of dollars from the victim.
The scammer also convinced the victim to purchase another $6,000 in gift cards, and give the scammer those redemption codes. Kettelkamp says the unfortunate part is that is unlikely that law enforcement will be able to track anyone down.
Kettelkamp strongly advises anyone who is a victim of a scam to reach out the the FBI online, and go to their internet crime complain center.
