Despite warnings from the law, some folks still falling victim to the so called Emergency Phone Scam. Barrie Police got a call yesterday from an elderly man who reported getting a call from someone claiming to be his son. The caller said he’d been caught drinking and driving and needed a large sum of bail money. The phone was passed to a scam artist claiming to be the lawyer, who gave the elderly man directions on how to wire money to them. A few hours later, the same scammers called back saying it wasn’t enough, and the elderly victim sent more. Police say if you get a call like this, ask questions only your family would know, or call family to verify the story before sending any cash.
