Paris woman alerts police to scam targeting elderly

PARIS, Tex. (KXII) -- A well known scam has been reported again in Paris that targets grandparents.

The scammers told a Paris woman that her grandson was in a car accident in another country and had broken bones and she needed to send money immediately.

The woman called her daughter-in-law in the nick of time.

She wants others to know in case they get a similar call.

Police remind you to always double check if you think something isn't right and report all scam calls to them.
