‘Everything we had was gone’: Small business owner says he lost nearly $200,000 to wire transfer fraud

Click 2 Houston

HOUSTON – A Cypress man, who owns a small business, says scammers wiped out nearly all the money in his trucking company’s checking account, and now he’s struggling to keep the business afloat.

After getting a text message asking about a purchase, Charles Haney got a call from what he thought was his bank’s fraud division on Dec. 7 to verify if he was paying for something in Florida.

“I told him, ‘No, I’m not,’” Haney said. “The only information I gave him was to verify what he was asking me.”
