Another Day, Another Phone Scam

The following arrest information was provided by the Avon Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Guess the "Grandma, I'm in jail" and "You won!" phone scams were getting boring for thieves, because there may be a new one making the rounds.

A Kinzel Road resident called Avon police earlier this month after she got several phone calls from someone with a “foreign” accent threatening to crash her computer if she did not send them money.

The woman said she would contact Time-Warner, her internet provider, and, if the person called back, make a formal complaint to police.
