The Cinnaminson Police Department has received several reports from victims being asked for money to be wired oversees to help a grandchild.

The victims were told the grandchild was arrested and needed nail money. The third-party was able to give the name of the grand child and some limited personal information.

In one incident a grandparent was asked to wire $180,000 to the Dominican Republic to have his grandson released.

The police ask all residents to be cautious any time someone asks them to wire money. If you receive a call of this nature, contact your local police department.

This article should serve as a warning to anyone who reads it. The warning is: if you get an email that is worded similarly to this, delete it immediately. You can do better. John, I agree. The sheer amount of scams that target the elderly is startling. It's a fine line between maintaining vigilance and crossing over to full on paranoid. The world must seem like it's falling apart at the seams.
