Grandparent Scam A “Go” Again

Antigo, WI, United States /

These things seem to come and go, but apparently it’s a “Go” again for the grandparent scam in our area. Police say a Deerbook woman contacted them recently saying she had gotten a call from a woman who claimed to be her granddaughter and said she had been in an accident. The caller went on to say that she was injured and in jail and needed $2,500. The recipient noticed all zeros on her Caller ID and questioned the caller further and gave her nothing. Police say another member of that same family had had a similar incident happen to them a few days prior.
