From Minnesota: (thanks, Erin for the heads up about this story!)
A Minnesota couple lost more than $200,000 in a sophisticated email scam authorities say is sweeping the country.
Email records reviewed by KARE 11 reveal the scam may have connections overseas.
“People in other countries are using our system – our banking system – to rob U.S. citizens,” says Steve Tadevich.
Authorities say what happened to Tadevich and his wife should be a warning to anyone who uses email or does some of their banking online.
