Southside Woman Scammed Out of Thousands

Posted:

Hurt, VA - A Hurt woman was scammed out of thousands of dollars after being told she had won a sweepstakes.

Police say Clara Stump of Hurt received a call saying she had won $2 million.

The caller asked her to wire close to 10,000 dollars to cover taxes and fees, but the $2 million pay-out never came.

Charges were certified Monday against Luis Albert Bell of Chesapeake for obtaining that money under false pretenses.
