New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood is warning about an increase in cases of the so-called “grandparent scam” that targets senior citizens with calls from suspects that pose as a grandchild of the victim. The scammer directs the victim to purchase prepaid debit cards then call back with the card numbers. Those targeted by this scam are urged to call the Attorney General’s consumer helpline at 1-800-771-7755.
