1-he Adams County Record Wednesday, December 12, 2012 Page 5 BY DALE FISK Imagine a business rents several offices from you in a building. One of the requirements is that the operation maintain a fund to cover the rent. Every month, $1000 is to come from that fund for rent. One day one of the office occupants who works for the company renting the spaces says someone has stolen $1,000 from the rent fund. You launch a big investigation, trying to determine what happened to the missing $1,000. Rumors abound, fingers are pointed and the reputation of the person in charge of the fund is at stake. After much -time and expense, you discover that the "missing" $1,000 was paid to you as rent as required each month. Would someone feel a little sheepish or what!? This is pretty much what happened in Adams County Organizations / Boards BY DALE FISK Every time people get educated about a scam, the criminalscome up with a new scam or put a new twist on an old one. Lately several local senior citizens have been contacted by some- one claiming to be a grand- child in trouble and needing money. This scam has been around for a while, but the latest depths to which these scumbags will crawl seems to be making the lie more believable. A Weiser woman got a call from her "grandson" who said he was in jail in Mexico. He needed bail money. He then handed the phone to some "official" who told the lady that he would arrange for a taxi to pick her up and take her to Alberston's where she could wire a moneygram for $2,000 to get her grandson out of jail. He emphasized she had to do this by 5:00 PM. A run- down taxi showed up and took her to get the money- recently with the big flap over 911 funds that were supposed to be missing. The 20% of the fund that was "missing" was discovered to be the 20% that was to go to the State - the very people who were investigating the "crime" received such a call recent- ly, and who knows how many calls have been unre- ported. Everybody needs to be aware that scammers seem to be especially active around Christmas. Be sus- picious any time someone asks you for money or per- sonal information. Anything that sounds a little too good to be true probably is.

And then the taxi driver had the nerve to charge her $70. All during this con, the "official" explained that the woman's phone might be tapped and that she was not to call anyone to discuss this. The next day the "offi- cial" called to say there was another problem, and that her grandson needed more money, this time for a lawyer. At that point, the woman finally called her daughter McDaniel, Happy Dog Inn & Hellbusch, Gene & Beth Day Care - Barbara Smole, Hemenway, David & Heather Idaho Power, John Hucks Hunt, Randy & Linda Jackson, & Helen Moore, Morton & Dr. Bryan D. & Pegean James, Lu Ann Katz, Mark & Lorie Stephen & Janet JeffeW, Ray Martindale, McGarry, Inc. & Beth Kljajic, Marry & Jan Parks & Rec Board Meeting First Wednesday Of the month at 6:30 pm at City Hall.
