CRIME AND COURT ROUNDUP: Some scam stories have happy endings
As Wisconsinites fall victim to more-and-more scams, at least some horror stories have happy endings. That was the case in Lincoln County, where officials stopped an elderly Gleason woman from losing eight-thousand dollars. According to authorities, a scammer contacted the woman on a social media site, and they became friends. She then agreed to his request to open a new bank account, cash a check, and wire the money to Georgia where he claimed that she had relatives in trouble.
