Yesterday afternoon, Guelph Police responded to a collision at the Intersection of Scottsdale Drive and Kortright Road.
A 70-year-old male driver was transported to hospital with minor injuries. The other driver, a 20-year-old female was charged with making an unsafe turn.
And its a familiar scam targeting senior citizens.
Guelph Police say the callers will either say a family member has been in a terrible accident, or a relative has been incarcerated. In both cases you’ll be asked to wire money right away.
Its important that you take the time to verify the story. Either contact another family member, or ask the person on the phone further questions to make sure they are who they say.
