St. Thomas Police are reminding the public to be diligent when sending money by
wire transfer. A local woman was scammed out of one thousand dollars after she was
contacted by a scammer posing to be her sister. The scammer used the What's App
texting application to hide their identity. During conversations, the scammer convinced
the woman it was her sister contacting her and that she needed one thousand American
dollars to pay for the release of a larger amount of money. A wire transfer was
sent and when the victim called her sister she discovered she had been scammed.
