An online scammer pretending to be Cole Swindell convinced two people that they could visit Cole’s house in Washington. Obviously, Cole doesn’t live there, but the two guys who got scammed didn’t know that, so off they went.  No one was home when they got there, so they entered through an unlocked door. Luckily, the real homeowner saw it on his security camera, and called the cops.  Meanwhile, a neighbor told the police when they arrived that “two unknown individuals” were inside the house.
