So Called Grandson Scam Again Making The Rounds

Fri 8-2-2019

(Sibley)-- The so-called “grandson” scam is again making the rounds.

Officials in Osceola county say an elderly Sibley couple recently fell victim to it after getting a call from someone stating their grandson had been arrested and was in federal prison in Wyoming. They were then told to send $10,000 to another state to bail him out.

The caller sounded very convincing, giving the names of law enforcement and court officials.

Authorities again remind everyone to not give any private information over the phone or internet and to contact law enforcement if you receive any suspicious phone calls.
