Town of East Troy Police Warns of Scam
According to a post from the Town of East Troy Police Department, Chief Jansen is warning residents, particularly those who may be grandparents, to be mindful of a scam circulating in which a scammer will pretend to be their grandchild. The scammer will pretend to be in distress and ask the grandparent for money. If the victim questions why their voice sounds different, the scammer will claim they are sick or have poor phone connection. The bureau of consumer protection offers many suggestions to avoid falling victim to these scams, which can be found on the Town of East Troy Police Department Facebook Page.
