Recently the Richmond Heights Police Department took a report from an individual who was a victim of a common type of scam, sometimes referred to as a “family emergency scam” or “grandparent scam.”
As explained by the Federal Trade Commission…
Scammers may pose as relatives or friends, calling or sending messages to urge you to wire money immediately. They’ll say they need cash to help with an emergency — like getting out of jail, paying a hospital bill, or needing to leave a foreign country. Their goal is to trick you into sending money before you realize it’s a scam.
