Woman loses $16,000 in attempted Yahoo Auto purchase
You can lose thousands of dollars online if you don't know who you're dealing with.
A Sheboygan Falls woman learned the hard way, when she got scammed out of $16,000 after she tried to buy a car on the Internet.
The 33-year-old woman reported the incident to Sheboygan County sheriff's deputies this week.
Capt. Dave Adams said she tried to buy a vehicle through Yahoo Auto and she wired the money to the seller.
