GERMANTOWN, Wis. - A Germantown woman is getting back some serious cash -- $20,000 -- after falling victim to an inter-state scam, police say.
On its Facebook page, the Germantown Police Department shared information from the Spalding County (Georgia) Sheriff's Office regarding an April 6 search warrant execution.
After communicating with Germantown investigators, Spalding County investigators determined the phone scam victim had mailed the cash to a Georgia residence.
