Scam

Security and CCPD responded to a residence for a report of a scam. The resident stated that she had received a call from a young woman claiming to be her granddaughter who stated she had been in an accident and was in jail. The “granddaughter” informed the resident that another individual would contact her to make the arrangements for her bail. The second individual contacted the resident approximately 10 minutes later with details about the accident and where to send the bail money.
