On March 9 at 1:47 p.m. a Marshfield female called with concerns regarding two separate withdrawals from her mother’s checking account that she believes are fraudulent. Upon contact, the mother stated that she had made them in order to pay a man who had contacted her via phone. The male had told the woman that she had won a very large money prize but that first she needed to pay him taxes in order to receive the prize, resulting in the two withdrawals.
