DRPS say "Grandchild Emergency" scam calls have increased recently. In this scam, a fraudster will contact a senior by phone and claim to be a grandchild who is in trouble. With great urgency, the victim will be instructed to send cash via money transfer. In a recent case, the victim was told by the "grandson" that he needed money that day as he had been charged for distracted driving.
