A Washington County grandmother says she was nearly duped into wiring money overseas in a bogus scam that seems to be plaguing the region.
Earlier last week, Marion County Sheriff’s officers warned residents there of a potential scam targeting the elderly. Local authorities say they’ve received scattered reports of scammers here.
A Springfield woman told The Sun she was nearly a victim of that scam.
The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said she received a phone call about 9:30 a.m., Jan. 11, from a man who posed as her grandson.
