Out Of $15 Was Mrs. Wm.
IL Wing Of This City
By A Swindler Who Was Ex
ceedingly Clever
Money Was Sent To Her Son
Who Was "111"
Mrs. William R. Wing, residing
south ot the city, has Just discovered
that she has been victimized out of
$15 by the smoothest swindle that has
been pulled oft In this community'for
many a day.
A day or so ago Mrs. Wing received
a telephone message from Youngs
town, O., from a man who represent
ed himself to be Mrs. Wing's son, Mr.
Edward H. Wing ot Cleveland. The
man stated that he was Edward Wing
and that he had been robbed and as
saulted in Youngstown and that he
was.badly in need of money to return
to Cleveland. The man stated that
$15 would take him back to Cleveland
and requested Mrs. Wing to send that
amount Immediately by telegraph.
According to Mrs. Wing tho voice ov
er the telephone sounded exactly like
her son Edward's, and accordingly
she hastened to the telegraph office
and sent the $15 by wire.
After waitirg a day and hearing no
further word from her son, Mrs. Wing
wrote to Cleveland to find out the con
dition of her son and to Inquire if
he had received the $15. In a short
time Mr. Edward Wing called up his
mother by telephone and informed
her that he had not been In Youngs
town and that she bad evidentally
been swindled out of the $15.
Mrs. Wing at once communicated
with Youngstown and secured a des
cription of the man who received the
money by telegraph and a detective
has been put on the case. .
