View Royal woman falls for grandparent scam
The West Shore, among other communities in Greater Victoria has been hit with the fraudulent grandparent scam.
Residents are receiving calls from people pretending to be a child or grandchild who has gotten in trouble overseas and requires money.
Last week West Shore RCMP received three calls from residents who received these phone calls. One was a woman in View Royal who sent out $8,000.
If you receive these phone calls do not sent money," said Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz. "Make contact with other family members to confirm or deny that it's true."
