Arrest Bond Scam

Callers are phoning Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles of young persons and telling them they are their grandchild or nephew and they have been arrested in Canada. They tell them "I need Bond money right away or I will be in jail for the weekend. " They will also tell you that you are not to call their parents. They will ask you send money thru Western Union to an address in Canada.

THIS IS NOT YOUR RELATIVE... it is a Scam. Ask the caller questions only your grandchild or nephew would know or tell them you will call parents. Think about this... if they have been arrested the police won't let them go to Western Union to pick a check!
