Whiting Police Department is advising everyone that there is a telephone scam going around. When a family member answers the call, the caller says (example: “Grandma”) and the family member acknowledges them and they tell them that they have been in an accident and needed stiches. They also let the family member know that they hit a pregnant woman and she lost the baby. They tell the family member that they need a lawyer and needs $10,000. They need the family member to drop the money off at a certain location as soon as possible.
If you happen to get a call regarding this scam or any scam, PLEASE call 911 to report the scam.
