Fraud Investigation Phone Scam Takes New Twist

Lexington Police alerted the public this week about a phone scam that has taken a new twist.

Authorities say the scam originally involved calls that would come from a foreign sounding man demanding cash for a kidnapped child, complete with a crying child in the background. These calls have taken a new twist with demands for money for a spouse rather than a child. The latest case involves a doctor at Bluegrass Orthopedics. ┬áThe caller claimed to have the doctor’s wife. ┬áPolice say the doctor wasn’t fooled and while on the phone with the man had a staff member call to verify his wife was safe.

Authorities say if you happen to receive one of these calls, get as much information as you can and then call police.
