Police warn of phone scam targeting seniors

Trustee Mary Sutton, who works on many programs with Bridgeview seniors, reports there has been a recent increase in scam calls targeting seniors in the community.
 
Callers pretending to be family members in dire straits ask for money to be sent or wired to an unknown address.

Bridgeview police warn to NOT send money to anyone who contacts you by phone. Do not give them any personal information. Your best defense is to hang up the phone.

Police also advise that if you have caller ID, write down the number and contact the Bridgeview Police by
calling 911.
