Milton Man conned in immigration hoax


October 11, 2013
MILTON, Ga. A Marrywood Drive man was the victim of fraud Oct. 1 after he gave money to a man he thought was a government official.

The victim said he was called at nearly 11 a.m. from a number that turned up as "911" on caller ID. The man on the other end claimed to be an "Agent Wilson" with immigration. He said the victim would be deported for not having his immigration paperwork. The victim told the agent his immigration status was being handled by his employer. The agent told the victim he needed to pay nearly $5,000 or be deported.

The victim only had $2,800 and was told he could pay that immediately by putting the money on "Green Dot" prepaid cards. He gave the agent the cards' numbers over the phone.

The agent was a scam and the money on the cards was used immediately.
