Authorities Recover Money Scammed From Tomahawk Woman

Antigo, WI, United States /

They’re not saying exactly how much but Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies were able to get back a large amount of money that had been scammed from an elderly Tomahawk woman last week. She said she had been contacted by someone saying they were from the Drug Enforcement Agency and that her grandson was in custody on drug charges. She was ordered to send $4,000 to a Michigan address, and after she agreed, the amount was boosted to $10,000. Not clear how much might have been sent or how police managed to recover it, but it’s an extremely rare situation in which that happens.
