In early June, the Cambridge resident was contacted by an individual, who claimed to be a representative with the Chinese Government. Over the course of a week, the resident was coerced into buying an international phone and was called multiple times a day, which led her to believe that she was the subject of an international arrest warrant. She was requested to wire transfer $95,000 to a bank in Hong Kong or face arrest. The resident complied with the threats and transferred the money. However, following the transfer, the resident became suspicious and contacted the Cambridge Police Department.
