OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City police are calling upon community members to help identify a suspect who is allegedly scamming elderly residents.
The Oklahoma City Police Department has recently received several complaints about a person calling residents and claiming that the resident’s relative has been arrested and needs cash to bond out of jail. The suspect even provides detailed information about the relative, according to police.
“Because of the detailed info the suspect has, he has been able to convince our victims that he his claims are legitimate,” police officials said.
The suspect then goes to the victim’s home and collects money from the unsuspecting victim. Surveillance photos show that the person who shows up at the homes is a man.
