Jackson man victim of money scheme

Author: | Posted in Uncategorized No comments



On March 3, a 51-year-old Jackson man told police he had been induced to wire $25,000-$30,000 over a period of about 10 months to a person he knew only via the internet.


According to Chief Jed Dolnick, “The leading methods to defraud people are to induce them to wire money or to deposit it into a bank account. Wired money can be claimed anywhere in the world and the bank account has often been ‘hacked’ from another victim; either way, the money is gone and the thieves are beyond the reach of law enforcement. I cannot think of a legitimate reason to wire money to anyone or to deposit money into a stranger’s bank account.”
