A Sioux Falls woman in her sixties is out $400 after a scam that began in India.

Police Information Officer Sam Clemens says the woman got a call telling her something was wrong with her computer.

He says the caller was able to talk the 66-year-old woman into downloading software that allowed him access to her computer.

The caller said he, in turn, would install anti-virus software and a firewalll once he had remote access to her computer, so she wired the $400 to India.

Clemens says older people are often the ones victimized by this type of scam.
