An Evansville business falls victim to fraud.

Evansville Police say the owner of Thai Cuisine received several calls regarding the payment of his Vectren bill.

The caller said he was from Vectren, and told the owner the power to his business would be shut-off if the owner didn't send money to his account within minutes.

Investigators say four Moneypak debit cards were used to send more than $1,700 to an online account.

So far, no suspects have been named.
