A 60-year-old Lost District Drive man reported to police that he'd been the victim of fraud after an attempt was made to transfer $72,000 from his bank account.
On Friday, Jan. 18, the man received an email with instructions to transfer money from one account into another at his bank, according to police. The transfer never took place, said police, who believe the email may have been sent from a computer located in Florida.
Police are investigating.
