[ARCHIVED] Attempted Fraud

On November 8, 2016 at 1:07 p.m., Hampton Township officers were dispatched to CVS Pharmacy for an individual that was believed to be a potential victim of a money scam. Upon the officer's arrival, the individual in question was in the process of trying to purchase a large quantity of ITunes gift cards. Upon speaking with the individual, it was discovered that they had received a phone call from someone claiming to be their grandchild. The "grandchild" stated that they had been arrested and needed money, in the form of gift cards, to get bailed out. The responding officer assisted the individual in verifying that the grandchild was not incarcerated, and that the phone call was a common scam.
