Tis the season for thankfulness, celebration and SCAMS. There are a number of scams going on around Madison, one being the Grandparent scam. This is where are called and a person claiming to be a police officer says the grandchild was arrested and they need bail money to get out. The victim is told to wire money to an account or send money to an address the caller gives them.
If you have questions about the legitimacy of a phone call, hang up and call the police or a trusted family member. DO NOT WIRE OR SEND MONEY!
