Police Department Safety Reminder:  The Grandparents Scam

Imagine - a grandparent receives a frantic call from someone they believe to be their grandchild, but who is actually a scammer. The supposed grandchild sounds distressed and may be calling from a noisy location. Claiming to be in some type of trouble while traveling in another country.  Maybe they’ve been arrested, in a car accident, or in need of emergency car repairs.  They ask the grandparent to wire money immediately for bail, medical treatment, or car repairs.

A variation may involve two scammers -- the first calls and poses as a grandchild under arrest. The second, posing as some type of law enforcement officer, gets on the phone with the grandparent and explains what fines need to be paid. They typically try to intimidate the grandparent into not disclosing the situation to anyone else – this helps avoid the grandparent finding out they are being scammed.

A common theme of this scam across the nation is the caller’s request for the grandparent to wire money through Western Union or MoneyGram or to provide bank account routing numbers. Wiring money is like sending cash – there are no protections for the sender like reversing the transaction, tracing the money, or recovering payment from the telephone con artists.

Protect Yourself

Be suspicious when you receive a telephone call if:

  • A grandchild calls you from a far-away location.
  • The grandchild says, “It’s me,” or “It’s your grandson,” or “It’s your favorite grandchild.”
  • The grandchild is in some trouble or distress.
  • The caller asks for money to be wire transferred.

If you receive such a call, you should hang up and call another family member who can confirm your grandchild’s whereabouts. Try calling your grandchild at the telephone number through which you normally reach him or her. Stay calm and avoid acting out of a sense of urgency. Do not wire money unless you have verified with an independent third party that your grandchild is truly in trouble. In addition, never give out any personal identifying information such as bank or credit card numbers to anyone who calls you on the phone.  Learn more here: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0204-family-emergency-scams

Water Quality Reminder:  Little Things Can Enhance Our Water Quality

Stormwater runoff with excessive amounts of pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers is a significant threat to the quality of our water.  Please take the following steps to protect the water quality in our lakes and streams:

  • Limit the use of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
  • Do not apply fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides if heavy rain is predicted.
  • Rather than broadcasting herbicides, spot treat only those areas that contain weeds.
  • Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in a natural state with trees and other native vegetation that require little or no fertilizer.
  • Properly dispose any unused pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Do not dump unused fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides down a storm drain.
