Vicki Rowe, of 307 Pine Ridge Court, informed officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department Thursday that she was the victim of an attempted scam.
Rowe reported to police that she had received a call from an unknown person requesting her personal financial information, and that she initially had given the suspect some of her personal data.
The suspect went on to provide Rowe with information to wire funds to Hong Kong.
She quickly contacted her bank and was able to place holds on her credit card and financial accounts before any transactions could take place.
Law enforcement stresses that residents should never surrender sensitive personal information over the telephone, especially if they are uncertain who they are talking to.
