 FRAUD: An Upper Mountain Road man reported to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office on Thurday that he signed up on the website www.instantphonecash.net to try and make some extra money and sent in $100 as a start up fee and an additional $300 for loan insurance through Western Union to an unknown suspect from the website. The company then contacted the victim from multiple numbers asking for service fees, tax fees, and other fees for services. At this point, the man said he started to think he was being scammed and called the sheriff's office. Deputies attempted to find out more about the website through a number the man provided, but they could only determine that the business was located in California.
