So far, the con has called seniors to wire money to his account. In one case, a woman was called by a man claiming to be her son. Additionally, the caller told the woman that he was in an accident in Canada and needed money to get home. He requested $2,350 to be wired to a location in Canada and told the woman not to tell anyone. Police say it’s difficult to get your money back in phone scams. Police advise seniors that if they hear lines like that, they should just say no thank you and hang up the phone.
