Chicago Man Charged For Scamming In Texas


23-year-old Muhammad Muzammil, of Illinois, was apprehended by authorities in Texas for stealing thousands of dollars, using scamming methods.

Authorities in Longview reported that Muzammil scammed a person out of a large sum of money.

He is facing one count of felony theft of property worth between $30,000 and $150,000.

Police in Texas say that these type of scams are increasing and are usually aimed towards senior citizens or young adults.

They have added that people should be aware of unsolicited emails, calls, or messages that require a person to provide their personal information. They also urge the public to be concerned if asked to pay through a gift card, wire transfer, or cryptocurrency. Citizens should always validate who’s calling, while hanging up and calling back, using a valid phone number. People also shouldn’t feel as if they are being persuaded to make an instant decision.

If a scam is suspected, police should be contacted.
