Scammers target seniors with 'grandson in Canada' ruse

The "grandson in Canada" scam is popping up again in our area.

A woman in Cottage Grove called the KVAL tipline, saying she got a call from her supposed "granddaughter" in Canada who needed money to bail her out of jail.

The caller asked grandma not to tell her parents.

You'll hear from the Cottage Grove woman about what happened and how she recognized that it was a scam tonight on KVAL news at 5 and 6.
