EDINBURG – A Rio Grande Valley hotel is the center of an investigation after an impostor tricked them out of $1,500.

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Edinburg says they’ve received several prank calls over the last two weeks.

The general manager tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS they requested a package that included security cameras.

“They needed $1,500. And if they didn't have the money, the owners would have to pay $9,000 for it,” says general manager Velma Ramos.

KRGV’s Sierra Pizarro explains how it happened.
