According to the Gulfport Police Department"The online suspects were able to gain access to the victim's online account and somehow lock the victim out of the accounts."

GPD Sergeant Thomas Woodman said the case is "an active ongoing investigation" and is likely a scam.

Woodman also said police have yet to make any arrests.
