The FBI reports that hundreds of New Yorkers have been victimized by this latest scam.

The con artist will usually demand a ransom between $600 – $900. The caller gives specific instructions where to wire the payment, which usually ends up in an account in Puerto Rico.

These zip codes are located in Puerto Rico. READ MORE HERE
