• “Grandparents Scam” in Pasadena


    PASADENA (CNS) – Pasadena police yesterday said elderly people have been targeted in their city by the so-called “Grandparents Scam.”

    In the typical scenario, a grandparent receives a call from a scammer claiming to be one of his or her grandchildren. They say they are in trouble and need money immediately. Typically they claim to have been in a car accident, in a foreign country or need bail money.

    The victim will be asked to wire money.

    If you or someone you know is being scammed or has been scammed, call the financial crimes unit of the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4576.
