A phone scam costs a Salina woman over $2,400.

According to Lt. Scott Siemsen, an 87-year-old woman thought she was helping a grandson when she used Western Union to send $2,436 to a thief on Tuesday.

Police say an unknown suspect pretended to be her grandson and asked for her financial help after telling her about a car accident in the Philippines.

Lt. Siemsen says a clerk at the Dillion’s Grocery Store on W. Crawford, became concerned when the woman returned on Wednesday to wire another $2,400 to them.
