On May 7, the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office took a report from an
elderly victim that had been scammed by someone representing themselves as her
grandson. The scammer told the victim he was her grandson, he was in jail in Canada and needed $9000.00 to bondout of jail or “they” were going to keep him in jail for several months. Another scammer representing himself as a police officer with the Ontario Police Department got on the phone and reaffirmed that money needed to be sent.
