Chappaqua couple accused of scamming millions from man

A Chappaqua couple is under arrest after allegedly scamming a man out of at least $20 million.

Harrison police say they seized $150,000 in cash, computers and records from a company called Datalink in Mount Kisco run by Vickram Bedi and Helga Invarsdottir.

Investigators say the victim, who is not being identified, believed his computer had become infected by a virus so he hired the company to remedy the situation. Over the course of a few years, the couple allegedly used the business relationship to instill in the victim a fear for his life, allowing them to extort the money.

The two have been charged with a single count of felony grand larceny and face between eight and 25 years in prison if convicted.
