Phone scam targeting seniors

Posted: Updated:

Brattleboro police are warning seniors about a possible phone scam.

They say a senior was contacted to make an appointment to have a medical alert system installed.

That senior argued the system was never ordered and alleges that the person on the other end of the phone said it must have come from a concerned loved one. Police say the caller then pushed for an installation date and other personal information.

The department is reminding seniors when in doubt hang up the phone.
