Your Granddaughter Has Been Kidnapped: An advanced version of the Grandparents scam. The phone rings saying your daughter, son, spouse, granddaughter, or grandson has been kidnapped and they want $10,000. Go to this location and wire the money or they will be killed.
What to do? Don’t panic! It’s a scam. Tell them you are in the bathroom and you’ll call them right back. If they won’t hang up, hang up on them. Then call your family member or other family members until you find out where your loved-one is. Keep the number which can be reported to the police.
