ROSWELL, Ga. — A Roswell woman called police Nov. 14 after she realized she had become the victim of a scam.

The woman sells baked goods and uses outside vendors for supply needs. Last month, she was contacted online by a man who said he had a vendor supply location in Georgia and offered his services.

The woman agreed to the services and sent him $11,000 over three wire transfers.

On Nov. 14, the woman’s bank informed her that the man’s account was fraudulent and asked the woman to file a police report.
