2/10 at 3:21 p.m. An elderly woman called to report she had been the victim of a scam. She had received a phone call from a man claiming to be her son-in-law. The man said he was in jail in Canada and needed $5700 to make bail. He asked her to send the money to him via Western Union, but the name he provided was different than her son-in-law's name, and the address of the money order was in Texas, not Canada. The woman sent the money anyway. She realized she had been scammed when she received a call from her actual son-in-law, who was in Harpswell. She has since filed a complaint with the Maine Attorney General.
There were no summonses reported between Feb. 8-14.
