Grandparents Scam In Markesan


A police department in Green Lake County is warning residents about the “Grandparents” scam. Several citizens of Markesan have received convincing phone calls from someone pretending to be their grandchild. The scammer will know the grandchild’s name and will sound like them. The scammer will tell the grandparents that they have been involved in an accident or legal trouble and that they need money. The scammer will tell them not to tell their parents or they will get in lots of trouble. Markesan Police say the scammers study Facebook pages and obituaries to understand the family. Police recommend hanging up and calling an actual family member to make sure things are fine.
