2/12/2013, The Gallia County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a “scam caller”. The female “scam caller” told our victim that she was a family member (grand daughter), was in Mexico and had been in a car accident. She mentioned something about drugs being found on someone and she needed $1500. Of course NONE of this was true. The scam caller wanted her to go to a store and do an elctronic transfer of money. A male also got on the phone and spoke. We know this is a scam that they have been hitting the elderly with, and wanted to let all of you know it’s going on in the area. Do not send money or give your information out over the phone. ###
