SCAM HITS EAU CLAIRE

SCAM HITS EAU CLAIRE

An Eau Claire woman says she lost nearly ten thousand dollars to scammers. 

She says a caller claimed that her computer was going to be hacked and told her to buy gift cards from several stores to prevent the action.  The woman says she was urged to stay on the phone during the transactions and was asked to read the gift card numbers over the phone, then destroy them.  Officials say requests by phone for payment, especially with gift cards, are usually red flags and that people should hang up.
