Scam Targeting Senior Citizens

Release Date: May 08, 2020

 

Senior citizens across the state are being targeted through a phone scam.  Victims are contacted, via phone, and informed that their grandchild was in an accident or was arrested and they are in need of bail money to be released.  The caller tells the victim the sum of money needed and sends a courier to their home to pick it up or directs them to wire the money or purchase gift cards.

There have been over 70 incidents reported statewide with several occurring in Morris County.  Anyone receiving a similar call is asked to contact their local Police Department immediately.
