Scam related telephone calls attempting to target the elderly:
The caller states they are a child/grandchild who is in immediate need of bail money or they are going to be incarcerated. The caller will ask for credit card information or to have the money wired to them at a location which is usually out of state. DO NOT volunteer any information and ask the caller for their phone number and they will usually hang up.
Second scam is a call for fundraising solicitations and requests for volunteer firefighters from a group called Volunteer Firefighter Alliance from Topeka, Kansas.
If you receive this type of call please report it to the Police. If you have elderly parents/grandparents please discuss this with them so these types of scams can be avoided.
