A 33-year-old Dearborn Heights woman learned the hard way on July 16 to never provide banking information over the phone, when she lost $818 to a con artist claiming to be with a credit repair agency who wanted to deposit money into her account.
The victim said she was told that she needed to verify her identity by first sending $818 through Cash App to a designee from her Citizens Bank account.
However, the money which was initially returned to her was subsequently transferred out again, leaving her with an expensive lesson learned.
Citizens Bank requested that she file a police report prior to them initiating an investigation.
