Individuals calling and portraying themselves as an attorney, clerk of the court, or law enforcement claiming that one of your family members has been arrested and they can negotiate or resolve the issue for money. They also tell people not to report this to anyone because it is sensitive or embarrassing. These people prey on the elderly and feed off the information that you give them. They are professional con artists and make a living running scams. Do not become a victim. This activity will increase during the holiday season. Report suspicious activity to your local law enforcement agency.
