Man Scammed of $500k

Winning $500-thousand dollars is usually too good to be true. That is definitely the case for one 79-year old Murfreesboro man who fell victim to such a scam. The elderly resident told police that he sent $4,000 on two occasions to a female via Western Union. He told officers the female had called him stating that he won $500 grand and he needed to pay for “insurance” on the money before he could receive it.

At this point, the $8-thousand that was sent to the woman in the Philippines has yet to be recovered.
