Alert! Grandparents Scam
We have received calls and reports about an international "Emergency Cash Scam" that has hit our township. The victims receive a telephone call, purportedly from a family member who has been in a crash, or needs bail money, asking that funds be wired to assist them.
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 here for more information.
