"The scam works like this: A victim (grandparent) will receive a phone call from someone claiming to be his/her grandchild. The scammer (grandchild) will tell the grandparent about an emergency they are in, which may involve a car accident or having been arrested. The scammer will insist that they need money to get back home or post bail, and will ask the grandparent to send money through a money transfer service, amounting to several thousand dollars."
