Police warn of 'grandparent' and Internet scams
from The Ridgefield Press
"We get complaints like these yearly — we do get a bulk of them," Capt. Jeff Kreitz of the Ridgefield Police Department said. "The key is don't send money and contact the police department immediately if you feel you've been a victim, or are about to be a victim, of these types of scams." He explained that the grandparent scheme usually involves two perpetrators — one posing as a grandchild, who calls the grandparents for money, and the other as a victim.
