Elkhorn Police Department Warning of Scam
According to a post from the Elkhorn Police Department, they are warning residents of scams that are targeting the elderly in the community. Scam callers will claim they are a family member in trouble with law enforcement, and will ask the victim to send large amounts of money in order to pay for bail or attorney fees; and will then arrange a time to pick up cash from the victims residence. If you receive a call like this, verify the legitimacy of the call before giving money. The police department encourages you to hang up and call local law enforcement to report the scam.
