A U. of I. student reported that she had been the victim of a telephone scam. The student received a call from someone purporting to be a member of the U.S. Marshals Service who claimed that the student’s Social Security number had been compromised and that he had a warrant for her arrest. He directed the student to wire $2,900 to an unknown account via Bitcoin to resolve the matter. The student completed the transaction and then contacted police after the caller demanded more money.
