The Chocolay Township Police Department has issued a warning regarding a phone scam in the area.
According to police, the scammer pretends to be a family member, usually a grandchild. The scammer then attempts to get money from the family, stating that they are in jail and need money for bond.
The phone is then handed to somebody posing as a public defender, asking for the money to be transferred to their bank account.
If you experience any phone scams immediately contact your local law enforcement agency.
