WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington police say they’ve received several reports of phone scams the last couple of weeks.

The scams consist of a phone call to residents notifying them that their relative is in some type of legal trouble and needs money sent quickly to help them. The caller request they send the money through a wire transfer.

WPD suggests you verify the information by contacting the relative in question or other relatives to confirm the information is accurate.

Anyone stupid enough to send money through something like this without verifying it doesn’t deserve the money they have!
