Fraud: On-Line Purcellville VA                                                                                              

The victim recently began online sales via Etsy. Shortly thereafter, she received a message purportedly from Etsy that directed her to scan a QR code to verify her banking information. This directed her to a fake site, and upon entering her banking information, $600.00 was deducted from her account. The scammer then messaged her, ” You were duped.”
