Beshear warns of scam targeting grandparents

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Attorney General Andy Beshear issued an alert against a scam targeting grandparents.

A caller pretends to be the person’s grandchild, claims to be in trouble and asks for money.

If this happens to you, Beshear recommends calling your grandchild back at a known number or asking the caller questions that only your grandchild could answer correctly.

Anyone with information on the grandparent scam should report it to the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection hotline at (888)-432-9257.
