A Green Valley woman was scammed out of more than $83,000 over the past two years, something she discovered after nearly sending $8,000 more.

 According to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department report, since January 2015 the woman had sent seven checks, totaling $83,639, to various companies she believed were managing her timeshares. On Wednesday, she received a call asking her to wire $8,000, after which she was to receive $90,000.
A bank teller told the woman the call was probably a scam and had her contact the sheriff’s department.

The woman told a sheriff’s deputy the same woman had been calling her the past couple of years, but would sometimes use a different name, the report said.
