Fraud: Purcellville VA                                                                

The victim received a phone call from a number purportedly from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and was told that he was wanted for failing to appear for jury duty. The caller, who identified himself as a Lieutenant from the LCSO, gave him the option of paying a bond of $9500.00 or turning himself in. The victim chose the former, withdrew the money and went to a Coinstar machine, which turned the cash into crypto-currency. The victim ultimately went to the Sherriff’s Department headquarters, where he was informed that he was the victim of a scam.
