Police in the Region report a new phone scam is spreading. Porter County Sheriffs Police Sgt. Larry LaFlower says scammers will call you stating your relative has been in a crash, and by doing so, extract a relatives name from you. Once they have a name the scammers become aggressive telling you the relative hit a high-ranking gang member, and as a result, said relative is being held for ransom with the threat of physical violence until you need to send them money.
Police say do not give out any personal information, disconnect the call and contact your family member to confirm their condition.
