EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — An Evansville woman reported to police she has been scammed out of money by someone who said he represented a COVID relief agency.
EPD says the suspect was caught on camera withdrawing money out of the bank on two separate occasions and that he was able to convince the woman and her daughter that the agency would assist people in need with their bills.
The man told the women he needed their account information to deposit money into the accounts for them and they gave him $500 cash in advance.
He falsely deposited the money into the account then withdrew more than $3,600 from the two accounts, according to police.
EPD did not release any suspect information.
