Elderly being targeted in scam phone calls this holiday season

The Brown County Public Safety Communications Center has been receiving several calls recently from citizens receiving the specific spam call of a child or grandchild in an accident and needing financial help. Specifically, the elderly are being targeted. Please be cautious of these types of phone calls, as they are almost always a scam. Reach out to the child or grandchild directly rather than entertaining calls from any unclassified third-party sources.
