She told deputies the caller stayed on the line with her, warning her not to tell anyone what she was doing, and when she couldn’t find the fictitious anti-theft cards told her GooglePlay would do. She said she realized it was a scam when the man asked her to buy more cards.

Harassment: Deputies are looking for an Amsterdam man who allegedly threatened to kill an East Springfield woman and her children, Saturday. The woman told deputies the man has been sending her threatening messages through a fake account on Facebook, but said she knows it’s him because she messaged him by name and he confirmed his identity.
