West Bend Man Scammed by Man Claiming to be FBI Agent

On August 4, at 7:20 PM, a 23-year-old West Bend man reported that he had received a call on his cellphone from a man identifying himself as an FBI Agent.

The caller told the man he was working with the University the man attended and the IRS to collect past due debt. The caller told the man he was tracking the man’s movements and actions through the telephone and if he did not do what he was instructed to do or if he hung up the phone he would be immediately arrested.

The caller instructed the man to purchase several gift cards and provide the card information to the caller on the phone immediately after purchase.
