A 72-year-old Somerset man fell victim to a scam.

A scammer deceived the man into purchasing $1,300 in Google Play gift cards and providing access numbers to them via telephone in exchange for not filing a lawsuit against him, according to Somerset Borough police. The calls appeared to have originated in San Antonio, Texas.

The scam was reported Wednesday. Police are investigating.
