Scam targeting elderly in Nebraska

Northeast Nebraska law enforcement said, watch out for a scam targeting the elderly.

Norfolk Police Captain Michael Bauer said, the so-called "grandparent scam" usually involves an older person getting a phone call, or an e-mail, from someone who claims to be their grandchild

A Laurel, Nebraska, woman got one of those calls.

The caller claimed, he was her grandson and had been arrested and needed 75-hundred dollars to get out of jail.

There were red flags, and she was spared from the scam.

If you think you've been a victim of such a scam, contact law enforcement.
