DUNWOODY, Ga. — A Dunwoody woman contacted police March 2 after she realized she had been the victim of a phone scam.

That day, the woman received a phone call from someone who claimed to represent Apple. The caller said she had a virus on her computer and instructed her to give them remote access and to log into her account.

After the caller appeared to deposit $4,000 into her bank account, they instructed her to go to a nearby store and purchase gift cards with that money.

The woman called police, who told her to freeze her account instead.
