Elderly Fraud

Elderly Fraud

8/05/2021 - The Investigation Unit of the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office recently investigated an ongoing Elderly Fraud Case. The case is the ongoing Elderly fraud scam where a person calls claiming to be the victim's Grandchild or close family member. The victim was told by the supposed family member that he had an accident and is on his way to jail and he needs money for bond and the bond person or attorney will make all the arrangements. The person claiming to be the bond person or attorney will tell the victim there is a gag order and if they tell anyone about this they will not be able to get the family member out of jail. This has caused victims in Canadian County and Oklahoma County recently to lose between $6,000 to $53,000. This is entirely a fraud. If anyone calls you like this contact your local law enforcement agency immediately. Judges will not issue Gag Orders preventing inquiries like this. Presently we have identified two subjects which perpetrated these crimes, however we believe that there are more victims of these subjects. If you are a victim and have not reported this to your appropriate law enforcement agency please do so immediately. Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, Edmond Police Department, and Oklahoma City Police Department are working this case. If you have any questions concerning this type of fraud please contact Lt. Mike Grimes Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, Investigative Unit.

** SCAM ALERT **

5/03/2021 - The Canadian County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Unit was contacted today about a new version of an old scam to be alert to. The caller is claiming to be Undersheriff Kevin Ward from the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office and that the person being called failed to appear to testify as a witness. The victim was then told there is 2 Federal warrants for their arrest and they are for $3,500.00 each and they will have to bring the cash money to the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office in El Reno. The person calling requires the victim to stay on the phone the entire time to keep the victim from calling anyone for verification purposes. The caller will typically use the name of a legitimate member of the Sheriff’s Office, as an example in this case Kevin Ward is the Undersheriff of the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office. If you get a call like this hang up and call the Agency they are claiming to represent, do this by calling the published number for that agency, not a number they give you. No Law Enforcement Agency will require you to stay on the phone reference a warrant.   BE AWARE: THE CANADIAN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE WILL NOT CALL YOU AND ASK YOU TO BRING CASH FOR A WARRANT. Any questions concerning these type of phone scams contact the CCSO Criminal Investigations Unit, Lt. Mike Grimes.
