Be sure to stop payment with your credit card company for the expenses involved. If a check, tell your bank to stop payment on the check. My apologies in that I've partly repeated the advice of another person: re the credit card company, just wanted to be sure it was clear that you stopped payment immediately. If the scammer has your credit card info, then you need to stop all payment from after the date of the scam and request a new card with a different number. You can do this 7/24. You probably can stop check payment online if the bank is not open, but need to look at your bank account online to be sure.

JoAnn, are you an elderly person, and has the scam resulted from any activity involved with elder care? I.e., a caregiver, agency, someone just trying to exploit a vulnerable elder?

Really need more info. There are all types of scams out there. Some from foreign countries. There is no way you will be able to get that money back. Very hard to trace.

It depends on the type of scam.
Police report would be the first step.
If this was on a Credit Card the Credit Card Company might also be able to help. If this was done through the mail the Post Office might also be a help
