Alert! Grandparents Scam
We have received calls and reports about an international "Emergency Cash Scam" that has hit our township.

The most recent victim in the township lost $6000 after wiring cash to Canada. Another potential victim called Green Township Police after receiving a call "from her grandson" and was warned of the scam, preventing any loss. Click
