Did You Know?

It works like this: a grandparent receives a call from a person posing as a grandchild; the grandchild says they are in financial trouble and need help; the grandparent wires some money and never sees it again. Here’s how you can prevent the scam from working:

  1. Be careful of what you share on social media. Scammers often use this information to target unsuspecting victims.
  2. Be sure of who it is. Scammers may have some personal details, but not all of them. Ask plenty of questions, or just call your grandchild directly for confirmation.
