Police Warn of Phone Scam

KSAL StaffJuly 29, 2013

A Salina woman is scammed over the phone.

SPD’s Lt. Scott Siemsen tells KSAL News that a woman in her late 70’s contacted police on Friday after being conned over the telephone.

The woman reported to police she was told over the phone last weekend that her grandson was in legal trouble in British Columbia, because authorities found marijuana in his vehicle.

The caller identified himself as a sergeant with law enforcement in Canada and advised her to wire $1,500 to pay for his release.

The woman sent the money via Western Union and contacted police after learning her grandson was not in trouble.
