An area woman is warning Las Vegas resident to beware of a possible scam she almost fell victim to.
Maria Gonzales said she received a call on her cell phone last week from someone informing her she won $400,000 and a 2012 Tahoe. The catch: they wanted her to wire $898 to a person she didn’t know so that she could collect the money.
Gonzales, who contacted the Optic Thursday afternoon, said she told the man on the phone that she was poor and didn’t have the money. He suggested she borrow it.
