Scams that target older Iowans make me angry, and I know you feel the same way. Unfortunately, they seem to be becoming more and more common.

Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner recorded this video to warn about a scam that's been happening around the area. What I think is especially interesting about the video is the way Gardner describes the scam. His explanation is fast-moving and changing, just like the phone call targeting its prey.


Please be sure to share this information with those you love and tell them if they ever have doubts to call you, or the authorities. As you can see from the video, Sheriff Gardner is very interested in putting the people behind this scam behind bars. Let's hope he can do just that.
