Keep your ears open for scams coming in over the phone. The Lodi Police Department has received reports of telephone scammers posing as the victim's grandchild and asking for money to help them out of jail in Mexico or Canada.

The scammer will request wiring a sum of money to an unknown recipient, often asking the victim to not tell anyone else in the family. Concerned grandparents are quick to help out their loved ones.
