The caller told the woman he was in jail, and he asked her to wire transfer $1,250 in bail money. The woman said “she withdrew the money and then decided to call her grandson.” Her grandson “told her he was fine and was in Minnesota driving a semi truck.” She said she returned the money to the bank. An officer responded.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.


  1. That scam about someone calling a “grandparent” and pretending to be their grandchild in need of money happened to my mother, who lives in California. Someone called her claiming to be one of my kids. They gave a long story but then messed up their story because my child at the time was not of driving age. My mom caught on and started asking the caller questions they could not answer, and they hung up! Beware! If you get that “gut” feeling, ask questions. If it’s really the family member, they will understand and have the right answers.
