New Fraud Scheme Targets Elderly

Posted May 21st, 2014 @ 1:07pm

The state Attorney General's office is opening a criminal investigation into an email fraud scam that targets the elderly. The scheme involves false representations about compensation by the government of Ghana. It goes a step further by claiming that Attorney General David Louie has verified the authenticity of their claims. In a statement, his office says Louie "has no connection whatsoever with any scheme or promise to transfer money from a foreign government."
