CFRA Live – Ottawa Police sounding the alarm on a grandparent scam that is quickly gaining traction


Ottawa Police are warning residents of a ‘grandparent scam’ that is gaining traction. A tearful person, claiming to be a family member, frantically calls and asks for money. As the conversation progresses, the caller will typically say they’ve been arrested by police and they require money or gift cards to make bail. Bail hearings, of course, take place in court. What are the warning signs you need to watch out for? Sgt. Chantal Arsenault joins Andrew Pinsent on CFRA Live.
