Hutchinson Resident Victim of Scam 27 Jun 17

A Hutchinson resident was the victim of fraud after being told by a cell phone caller that she won the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

Police say the victim was told to send $499 to Ryan Livingston in Florida. The victim sent the money by Western Union. After the suspect received that money, the victim was told to send another $1,500.

She did not send the additional money and, on Tuesday of last week, notified police of the scam.
