Warning to the Public – scam

In the last 24 hours we have received 2 reports where local residents received calls from an unknown male presenting himself as a grandchild in distress.  In both cases the “grandchild” coerced the call taker that they needed to help to pay for bail.  In both cases the suspect convinced the victims to hand over thousands of dollars in cash.  NO ONE will ever take your cash from you for bail here or anywhere else other than at the Provincial Courthouse.  DO NOT give money of any kind to anyone unless you are personally dealing with the Court.
