Scam alert in La Salle

Posted by wlpo on April 7, 2016

There’s another scam going around the Illinois Valley.

La Salle Police say they’ve been getting complaints of a phone scam where the scammer will tell the targeted victim that a relative of theirs is in legal or financial trouble. The scammer will try and create a sense of urgency for you to send money, trying to make you think a relative was arrested or in a car crash. Sometimes the scammer claims to be an officer or attorney.

If you get this kind of call, check up with relatives before giving money. It’s always a good idea to hang up and call police as well.
