On 01/09/2015, at 1126 hrs, a resident in the 26000 block of Knickerbocker called Bay Village Police to report she had been scammed. The victim received a call from a male with a heavy accent who stated the victim was having computer issues, and he could fix them remotely. She gave the caller her debit card number, and the next day discovered $146.00 had been taken out of her account with no services being provided. She called the number back, but it was no longer accepting incoming calls. BVPD is investigating, and reminds residents NOT to give personal information out over the phone when being solicited.
