The caller will pretend to have a plight of a family member and want to come in larger sums of money. As the plight of a serious traffic accident or other tragic incident, is simulated. The money would be needed for a much-needed treatment or surgery or to the 'triggering' of the son from the police custody.
The police warns before this trick cases of fraud by "shock calls" to include the following tips:
- Be suspicious when an unknown caller confronted with a disturbing situation such as the accident of a family member and money from you calls. - They question the accuracy of the information and to take immediately and to contact their relatives. - Inform you in case of doubt, always the police.
