"Grandparent" Scam Still Happening
Fort Morgan Police Recently took a report from an older adult in our town who was scammed out of $8,000 dollars.

The victim received a phone call from someone pretending to be a granddaughter and said she needed money to be released from jail.  The con-artist told the victim to go to a convenience store and purchase $3,000 dollars in "Green Dot - Money Pack Cards" a type of reusable money card.

After purchasing the card, the victim called the thief and gave them the numbered code on the back of the card which allowed the criminal to remove the money that had been credited to the card.

The victim received a call that they needed to send an additional $3,000 and did so.  A few day later the victim received a call from someone claiming to be from the FBI who said they would help the victim receive their money back, but to do so, they needed a card with $2,000 on it.

Believing they were receiving help, the victim purchased a card with $2,000 which was promptly stolen.

In all the victim lost $8,000 dollars to the scammers using the "Grandparents" scam.

Police urge residents who receive a call from a friend or relative asking for help; specifically asking that money be sent, to verify with other family members the location of the person calling. 

If you believe you are the victim of a scam, call your local police.  In Fort Morgan, Call 970-867-5678.
