Thieves Get Creative in BCSFeatured Stories, News Friday, May 24th, 2013
A recent scam left a Bryan resident almost $4,000 dollars poorer.
Officer Kelley McKethan with Bryan Police says the victim was told that his nephew was in trouble and needed him to wire money fast.
She says you should be very suspicious of those kinds of calls, and don’t accidentally give them any names or information to work with.
McKethan says any time a stranger calls saying that your relative is in trouble, you should contact your relatives yourself to check.
Meanwhile, in an unrelated case, a College Station pawn shop employee was arrested for stealing.
Pedro Rivera, Jr., 22, of College Station, is accused of twice soliciting his cousin to trade fake golden chains for money from the register at Cash America Pawn and later sharing the money.
