When greed takes over

The victim said that two women approached her at her work. They told her they found a bag with $67,000 in it and they would split it with her if she first put up $5,000 to ensure them she wouldn’t call the police.

She drove one of the suspects to a bank in Sandy Springs and withdrew the $5,000. She drove the suspect to a building on Roswell Road to meet the other suspect. They told her to give them the money and then go into the building to get her share of the $67,000. They gave her a blue bag to put the money in.

When she tried to enter the door, it was locked and when she looked back to find the two women. Surprise! They were gone.

I know it’s hard to believe that people are this gullible, but greed is a mighty powerful influence. The obvious question is why would the two want to split the money with the victim in the first place?
