Kingston Police are warning of a telephone scam resurfacing in the area. 

Police say the "parent or grandparent" scam has fraudsters pretend they are a child who is in need of monetary help after they were arrested for impaired driving. 

Another person will then enter the conversation claiming to be either a police officer or a lawyer, who say the funds are needed for bail and legal expenses. 

The victims are then told to keep it a secret from other family members. 

Police are reminding residents to not sent money to anyone unless you know exactly where it is going.
