Hutchinson Woman Victim of Phone Scam 29 Aug 17

Hutchinson Police are investigating an alleged phone scam that cost the victim $600.

Police say the victim, a Hutchinson woman, received a call last week from someone saying he was with Dell Computer and that he asked if she was still having issues with her Dell computer. She said yes, and allowed the person to have remote access to her computer.

The victim later noticed two unauthorized charges of $300 each had been made on her debit card.

Police say the phone number that the suspect called from has been connected with previous scams.
