Westlake Nanny Hopeful Hoodwinked in Internet Fraud

Westlake Police logoA 23-year-old Detroit Rd. woman was hoodwinked via an Internet nanny job offer into depositing a bum check on April 8, report Westlake Police. The $2950 check was to be used to buy a $2300 wheelchair for the child she would be watching beginning in May 2015. Then the deal changed; she was to wire $400 and $1900 to a person in California on April 9. On April 13, the check bounced.

The Numbers Don’t Lie

On April 14, a Detroit Rd. woman divined that the late night hang-up calls she has been receiving since January were made by an ex-boyfriend. How did she determine this? Through numerology. The digits of the dates and times the calls were received add up to significant dates (or a date exactly 6 months from a significant date) for either herself or the ex. The male denied making any such calls. Only the tarot cards can tell what the future telephony will be.
