First Tuesday is an open house program that takes place on the First Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. at LVMPD area commands. Anyone is welcome to attend. After discussing the assigned topic, citizens will be able to learn more about their neighborhood and meet their local police officers.

The Grandmother Scam is still around

If you get a call from a relative saying they're in jail and you to wire them money, the first thing to do is check to make sure it's really your relative.

Here's an email we received today:

Several weeks ago, News 3 ran a story about people calling up and pretending to be a grandchild who needed money right away and some grandparents sent the money before they realized it was a scam. Well, my ex-mother-in-law, just received a call just like that today. The caller asked her, "Grandma, guess who this is?" When my mother in law responded with my son's name, the person on the phone started crying and saying he had been arrested in Haiti (of all places) and needed her to wire some money ASAP so he could get out of jail. She got really upset and handed the phone to her daughter who figured out that it was not my son. Anyway, I know you just ran the story a month or so ago but in light of the fact that someone here in Vegas got one of those calls, I think it might be a good idea to run the story again if possible. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that this scam is still alive and well and targeting grandparents. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Don't fall for the Grandmother Scam.
