Walker police warn of scam targeting area seniors

WALKER, Mich. — Police in Walker are warning of a phone scam targeting senior citizens.

In a post to the police department’s Facebook page, a scammer claims a loved one is in jail out of state and then asked to drop off a large sum of money mainly near Alpine Avenue businesses.

Police urgeĀ  the public to never to fall for this and never give out personal information over the phone, unless you’re absolutely certain the source is trusted.
