On-Line Fraud: Purcellville VA

The complainant received an e-mail, purportedly from the Pay Pal security department, about two “fraudulent” charitable donations. The victim called the hucksters, who then gained access to his computer. Unbeknownst to the victim, the scammers were able to move money from his savings account, into his checking account, and told him that the money in his checking account was from a fraudulent transaction. He became suspicious and started to question them and eventually contacted his credit union and shut down his computer. He discovered that all of his money was still accounted for. Due to a prior credit intrusion, the victim had a credit freeze on his accounts via the big three credit bureaus.
