A Bismarck woman was scammed into sending more than $25,000 in the last week.

The caller claims he worked for a federal crimes relief fund and asked her to send money in increments.

Between July 14 and 21, she sent $25,578 via money order and cash to a Florida address.

The case is under investigation.
