Reporting for a family member - A person pretending to be her granddaughter called crying saying she was in an accident in Sioux Falls and was being taken to the courthouse. The person needed my family member to call the number of the "attorney that the people gave her". They needed to hurry to make the call and acted very upset. The number they gave to call "the attorney" was (605) 272-5234. Our family member told them to call their mom and then hung up. Our family member did not call the number nor did she give any money.

Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

This scammer called my mother's number and claimed that he was a lawyer and that my son, her grandson was in a bad auto accident, was arrested and required $9,000.00 to be bailed out from jail.

I called the number back 802-397-7008. I got a voice mail stating "text messages" can't be receive. I left a vm not so kindly stating to never call my mother again. The individual had the audacity to call me back stating Hi this is law office how can I help you. I yelled again at them to never call my Mother again and that I was reporting them to the police and BBB.

Received a phone call saying 'this is Zachary' (my grandson). Sounded just like him.He said he was in a taxi in Atlanta, Ga.when the police pulled the taxi over for a probable cause and found drugs and a unregistered gun. He was now in jail and needed $20,000 for bail. He asked that I call his lawyer (Howard Anderson) at 250-609-2997 for details. I called the number (sounded fishy) Anderson told me that Zachary was an innocent victim and that $20,000 would get his trial moved to 2 or 3 days from 6-8 weeks. He would get released after he told his side of it. Anderson said the taxi diver would be held accountable.I than asked where Zachary was being held. Anderson gave me the number of the police station. He had the number handy..236-333-5577.I called that number and a person who said his name was Officer Keith Daniels answered. Officer Daniels had Zachary's file handy and had little Information to add. He said that the offense (carrying drugs) was the reason for the $20,000 Bail. At this point I hung up and said I would get back to him. I then called Zachary's mom who said Zachary was in his room and not in Atlanta. We both concluded the call was a scam. Lawyer, police officer and someone impersonating Zachary were all involved.

I got a phone call from my 83 year old father that my son was arrested in the Dominican Republic - my father said it didn't sound like him but he needed bail bond- not to tell anyone- he said the American embassy is involved and he passes a drug screen- but they had a lot of drugs and he didn't have any knowledge but was so embarrassed- he asked for the money to be sent by money gram- my father luckily is a smart man- he almost fell for the don't tell my parents but as a family we are close- unlike many elderly- so sad and I am irate -
