Anniston police Capt. Allen George said the 25-year-old woman purchased the ATV from someone online. She was told to send $4,056.50 to a Wells Fargo bank account, George said.
The transaction was made on March 15, according to a police report.
George said the victim spoke with a woman in Ocala, Fla., who owns the bank account the money was sent to. The account holder told the victim she doesn’t sell ATVs and her account was recently compromised by an Internet scam.
George said the case was under investigation this afternoon.
A suspect could be charged with first-degree theft, a felony, according to a police report.
