An elderly Murfreesboro woman has been forced to file bankruptcy after being scammed out of 62-thousand dollars. Local Better Business Bureau manager Terrie Page tells WGNS News the woman's neighbor was at her office last week and told her what was happening...

 

Page says the victim even went to several loan companies and post-dated checks for hundreds of dollars...

 

The woman's neighbor is now providing meals since she has no money. Page says anyone can fall victim to scams like this, especially since the elderly are targeted. She advises to check on your elderly neighbors and ask if they've received suspecious phone calls. Warn them about the potential of scammers trying to take their money. If anyone calls, even someone claiming you owe money, and asks for a wire transfer or Green Dot cards, it's a scam.
