LONG ISLAND MAN SCAMS $45,000 IN CASH FROM 81-YEAR-OLD WOMAN

LONG ISLAND, New York – A man is accused of scamming $45,000 from an elderly woman on Long Island, detectives say.

An unknown man reportedly contacted the 81-year-old victim and said that her son was arrested for being involved in a car accident that caused injuries.

The suspect told the victim that he needed $7,500 for bail money, police said.

He then went to the victim’s Oceanside home, where she gave the man the “bail money” in cash. The suspect later requested another $7,500, claiming that the bail was raised. Police said the victim met with the suspect again for the payment.

The suspect then contacted the victim a third time, telling the elderly victim that a pregnant woman was injured in the accident and lost her child.

The suspect asked the victim for another $30,000, telling her that this would cover medical costs and, if paid in cash, would erase her son’s criminal record.
