I was listening to the 11 PM news in Harrisburg and I thought I’d share, in case you already went to sleep or live elsewhere.
It is a simple but I believe efficient scheme.
Apparently, someone calls you (parent, cousin, sister, a family member) and tells you on the phone that your child is held hostage and demands money.
The advise on TV was to not engage in a conversation but to call the authorities. These people might know details about the “prisoner,” which are easy to find if one knows a name and birthday.
If anyone hears of other “schemes,” please share with us. Thank you:)
So please enjoy your Holiday and stay safe!!!
