Woman promised $2.5 million, loses $3,200
A 61-year-old woman reported to police Wednesday that she believes she was the victim of a scam. She said she recently received a telephone call from someone who congratulated her on winning $2.5 million and a new car. In order to retrieve her prize she needed to buy $3,200 worth of prepaid cards and then call back with the numbers on the cards. The woman did as she was instructed. But she has not heard back from the caller and has not received her money or her card, according to the report.
600 block of Boardwalk - Someone slipped in a woman's back door while she was sitting out front Wednesday evening and stole from her. The 79-year-old woman said she was sitting in her carport about 7:40 p.m. and decided to go back inside her home. When she was back inside she realized that her back door had been unlocked and she was missing a debit card, her drivers license and some cash.
