The victim told police she went to banks in Grove City and Hilliard and took out a $10,000 cash advance on her credit card and $1,000 out of her money-market account.

In the other incident, an officer responded at 4:37 p.m. Sept. 7 to a residence in the 4600 block of Goodman Street where a man reported his wife had been scammed out of $4,220 and the scammers were now sending people to their house, apparently trying to get back in contact with her.
The husband said a locksmith had been called to the house without their knowledge or permission.

She said she was surprised to hear the news and decided she would wait until all the details were finalized before telling her husband.
