There might be a phone scam going on in the Lake Area.
One Lake Area woman says she got a call from someone posing as her grandson and he wanted money to get out of jail.
Willie Martin of Roach says he’s not in jail, and it’s not the first time she’s taken this kind of call.
She says a man saying he was an attorney called right after she hung up on the fake grandson and he wanted money while giving a made-up case number.
KRMS News made a call to the phone number Martin provided.
It had a 4-10 area code and the man who answered hung up right away.
The name he answered with matched Martin’s story.
Two follow up attempts came up busy and then disconnected.
