GLEN ROCK, N.J. – Online scammers conned an 18-year-old Glen Rock woman out of $4,000, police said.
The victim said she’d “received an unsolicited e-mail offering her employment,” Police Chief Dean Ackermann said.
“The prospective ‘employer’ subsequently mailed her a check for $3,970, instructing her to deposit the money in her personal account and then wire money to various ‘clients’,” the chief said.
The woman discovered it was all bogus when the bank notified her that her account had been overdrawn, Ackermann said.
Detectives were investigating, he said.
