SUNSET BEACH—The Sunset Beach Police Department is investigating a scam in which a 79-year-old woman was bilked out of more than $1,500.
The incident, which involved obtaining property by false pretense, was reported Jan. 28 at the woman’s address on High Market Street.
Sunset Beach Police Detective Joe Smith said the woman initially responded to an email telling her she had won $950,000 and a new car.
The rest of her communication with the perpetrators was by phone. Callers told her she had to send money to receive her prizes.
