Woman Loses Over $34,000 in Oklahoma Based Phone Scam

Posted: Updated:

All it took was a phone call and now, a Connecticut woman is out over $34,000.

Oklahoma County Court documents, filed earlier today, show back on January 13, 2016, Darryl Hadley and an unidentified woman allegedly plotted to call their victim and pretended to be her niece. Investigators say the woman working said she had been arrested and needed money for legal help. It wasn’t long until funds were wired into Hadley’s Chase Bank account.

However, the case was first formally filled today at the Oklahoma County Courthouse and records show Hadley has a history here. In June of 2009, he pled guilty to trafficking cocaine in the county.

Investigators say they matched his previous mugshot from that crime to photos involved in this phone scam operation and found a match.

A Chase Bank representative told police they contacted Hadley before today's filing and he admitted to receiving the money and said it was "weird" because he was not expecting to get that much in his account.

Hadley faces a count of conspiracy to commit a felony and obtaining money under false pretenses. A warrant has been issued in the case.
