A 77-year-old female resident on Eagle Cliff reported to Bay Village Police that she was a victim of fraud last week. She had received a phone call from a person claiming to be her grandson. This person said he was in the custody of the Westlake Police, but a lawyer who just happened to be there was willing to represent the grandson and get him out. Unfortunately, the victim then purchased Amazon gift cards totaling $3,500. She then called the “attorney” and gave him the numbers on the cards. A report was taken.
