BRENHAM WOMAN VICTIM OF PHONE SCAM

 

Brenham Police are warning the public after a local woman became the victim of a phone scam.

The woman says she was contacted by phone about an outstanding loan and was told she had to pay $3000 immediately.

The woman says she then went to a local store and purchased $3000 worth of Money Pac Cards.  She then called back the scammers, giving them the ID numbers on the cards.

After several days the woman became aware that this was a scam and that her $3000 was gone.

She contacted police Wednesday and they have started an investigation.

Authorities are urging anyone who gets such a call to immediately contact police.
