Police Chief Russell Leffert  spoke about  financial fraud as it relates to seniors. He said that at this time of the year, the number of crimes rise. The scammers are usually from Canada and are very creative. They get  people to think they are their grandchildren or other relatives and need money wired for urgent reasons. The police are limited in what they can do. “It happens everyday and people fall for it,” Leffert said.
