A 20-year old Donard Court woman is scammed by a friend. The victim reported to Murfreesboro Police Officer Darryl Sanders she was approached by a friend of hers from school about a quick money making proposal.
The scammer reportedly told her she was co-owner of a bank firm Charles Schwartz in a partnership with Money Gram and Western Union. The suspect said she was tasked with generating money through the two services and develop bonuses for the bank.
The victim was promised 25-percent bonuses on her earnings. All that was needed was the user name and password on her banking account to deposit earnings.
A deposit was made of $800. But the victim's bank account was frozen the next day after a deposit attempt, deeming it unusual activity. The victim reportedly tried to reach the scammer, but she wouldn't answer calls.
