Police Warn Of Local Scams

The Northampton Police Department is  putting out a warning about several scam calls that are pervading the  city.  

One such case involved an elderly woman who was apparently  convinced to send ten-thousand dollars in a FedEx package after the  scammer talked to her about computer repairs.  

The department says it  was able to stop the delivery from happening at the last second.   

Another scam case involved a woman who said she was told she needed to  send two-thousand dollars to help out her grandson, who had been  involved in an accident.

Police say that although the scams are pretty old---there is still a need to get the story out because some people fall for them.
