Press Release

Recently the Fort Scott Police Department has received reports of local citizens receiving telephone calls from people identifying themselves as a family member in legal trouble. The person then asks for money to be wired to a specific location in order for them to be released from jail.

Often times the callers are posing as adult grandchildren and targeting older “grandparents” for the scam.

Please be aware of these types of scams and remember much information can be obtained about people from social media web sites, from not only who the site belongs to, but family members as well.
