Have you hear about this Scam? The Douglas Police Department has recently received calls for service regarding this form of a Scam. (Douglas Police Department Public Service Announcement January 2018) The kidnap and ransom phone scam involves stealing your money through manipulation and fear. The kidnap and ransom phone scam is considered a particularity threatening variation of the emergency scam, in which a caller claims to be a lawyer or law enforcement agent from another country. With the emergency scam, your loved one has supposedly been in an accident or been arrested – and you need to send money immediately to help them out. In the case of the kidnap ransom scam, however, the claim is that your friend or family member has been kidnapped and is in grave danger. The scammer elevates your fear, which causes people to react quickly. That’s what the scammers count on. While seniors citizens with grandchildren have typically been targeted in the past, the elderly are not the only ones being victimized. People will receive a call from a scammer who claimed to be holding his family member hostage, and threatened to kill them if the victim didn’t wire ransom money immediately. DO NOT SEND MONEY until you are able to confirm if your family member is indeed in any kind of harm or trouble. 5 Tips to Avoid Falling Victim to the Kidnap and Ransom Scam Douglas Police Department offers the following five tips to avoid this scam: 1. If you do not recognize the phone number displaying on your caller ID do not answer the phone. If someone wants to talk to you, they will leave a message. 2. Be careful what you post on social media websites like Facebook. People tend to post more than they should, which can leave you vulnerable. 3. If you receive a call from a scammer stating they kidnapped a family member, hang up immediately and call the family member. 4. If you are unable to get a hold of the family member, call the police, Dial 911. 5. Do not send money or purchase re-loadable cards at the scammer’s request or read the numbers off of the back of the re-loadable cards.
