Great Reminder about Phone Scams & the Elderly

The Pasadena Star News ran a recent article on phone scams targeting "grandparents" or other older relatives occurring in the Whittier area.  Brian Day at the PSN has been following this type of scam and mentions Arcadia in the article from previous incidents earlier in the year.  The article serves as a great reminder to be aware of this type of scam.  Take the time to talk with older relatives or neighbors, and let them know about these scams.  Tell them to always confirm the identity of the caller and immediately follow-up with their families to verify any alleged "problems" before parting with their money.  Here are links to previous posts on this topic:
