Each year, tens of thousands of people fall victim to telephone scams, resulting in individual losses to those victims ranging from a few dollars to their life's savings. Usually, in common schemes, the scammer will call a victim and fraudulently assert that they are with a law enforcement agency and that the person owes a large sum of money that is due immediately. They will tell the victim that an arrest warrant will be filed and the person will go to jail unless payment requirements are met. The scammer will direct the victim to a local retail establishment and instruct them to purchase pre-paid gift cards (iTunes, Google Play, Green Dot Visa, etc.). The victim is then directed to provide the phony "agent" with the gift card number(s) within minutes after the card's activation. If the scam is successful, they will try to get the victim to repeat the process at several stores, purchasing more gift cards. Once the gift card numbers are given to the scammer, the gift card loses its value and the victim suffers the loss.
Common victims of this scam are elderly and special needs people in our community who don't realize that they're falling prey to fraud until it's much too late.
