FBI alert for increase in scams to grandparents via telephone

Seniors have become a target of scammers in the Houston area. 

For this reason, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) launched an alert on the increase in cases that have recently been registered against the elderly. The modus operandi is to call the grandparents and pose as relatives who require financial help when they are involved in some kind of problem with the authorities.

According to the FBI, scammers are - even - sending drivers to their victims' homes to collect the money they think they are giving to get their families out of trouble. 

According to figures from the investigating body, in the first six months of this year more than 650 complaints have been received in this regard, with losses of almost $ 13 million. If you receive this call the FBI wants you to report your case on this website.
