RIVERTON, Wyo. — The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office says the phone scam about the grandchild needing money to get out of jail is back.

Sgt. Darwin Glasgow says watch for the caller ID number of all zeros to show up and the caller saying something like “Hi Grandpa.”

Stories include being stranded in another state because of car problems or illness.

The sergeant says do not respond to the request to wire money because it’s most likely going out of the country which means there’s no way to track it.
