VCSO issues warning after pair scammed out of thousands

Posted: Updated:
VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office is investigating after it says two people are scammed out of thousands of dollars.

Deputies say in both cases the victims got an email making them think they'd been selected for a new job.

Then they say they were told to deposit business checks they were sent, buy reloadable cash cards and send the card numbers to the person posing as the "employer".

The sheriff's office says those cards were then emptied of cash and the business checks failed to clear, leaving the victims in the hole for the amount they'd put on the cash cards.
