“Emergency Scams,” also called “Grandma Scams,” are still targeting older adults. Last month, we had a victim lose $12,000 because he thought his grandson was in jail and needed bail money. It wasn’t until the actual grandson called to wish his Grandpa a happy Easter that he realized he was scammed.

Please watch the YouTube video listed below with information about these types of scams. Share it with friends and family to help keep our community safe. Education is crucial and we need your help getting the word out.
