**** SCAM ALERT ****
The Huntsville Police Department has had several call-ins regarding a scam targeting the elderly people! The scam is called in as followed; One of their grandchildren will call and state that they are in jail and needing bond money for "X" amount.When you answer the phone the "grandchild" obviously doesn't sound like your "grandchild", so they'll use the excuse that their sick or they've been crying. They will then state, a bondsman, a lawyer, an attorney, or someone of higher authority in the jail will call them back with instructions on how to send the money via, money grams, western union, etc. Usually, they wont have you send it directly to the town or even the area where your "grandchild" is in jail. THEY ARE TARGETING THE GRANDPARENTS, ESPECIALLY THE ELDERLY ONES! They are also using random numbers, private numbers, and even blocked numbers. Obviously, not all the elders have facebook, so please let them know whats going on! If you have even the slightest uneasy feeling, IT'S PROBABLY A SCAM! Please call in to your local Police Department or Sheriff's Office and, to some extent, we can see if your family member is in jail! Please no send ANY money! We can not get the money back for you!
