Brandon Woman Out $4,500 In Scam

A Brandon woman is out $4500 following a social security card phone scam. The female told Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Deputies that she received a call from someone saying they had found the woman’s Social Security Card, along with drug paraphernalia, and the only way the matter was going to be resolved was to pay for it. The woman purchased 9 Target Gift Cards at $500 each, and then gave the gift card numbers to the anonymous person. The scammer then wanted the woman to get more gift cards from the Nike store in Oshkosh. Sheriff’s Deputies continue to investigate.
