Scam costs Catoosa woman $18,000

Oklahoman Published: February 28, 2013

CATOOSA -- A Catoosa woman who thought she had hit it big, instead took a big hit in the pocketbook.

The Claremore Progress reports that the woman received notice by mail that she had won more than $1 million from a well known giveaway.

She was given a name and number of an alleged agent of the business and did so, the Progress reported.

The ensuing conversations convinced her to send more than $15,000 in a "tax deposit" and more than $2,000 in an "activation fee" so her winnings could be released to her.

The National Fraud Center said the whole thing was a fraud.

For information on how the fraud center knew and how to protect yourself, read the story.
