Sac PD Warns Of Scam Targeting Seniors

The Sacramento Police Department’s Financial Crimes unit has identified a recent scam that targets elderly victims.

Suspects reportedly call the elderly victim and pose as a relative to the victim by saying, “this is your grandson” or something similar.

The victim will respond by saying the name of their relative and the suspect will then play like they are that relative. They say they have been arrested and the victim should wire them money for their bail.

The victim will never see this money again because it is a scam. Always be sure who money is being sent to before wiring someone money.

“Please advise your neighbors, friends and family of this scam,” says Capt. Daniel Hahn.
