Batavia police say they have received multiple complaints of a possible “Bondsman” scam.
Here’s how it works:
Someone claiming to be a bail-bondsman calls and says that a family member has been injured in an accident out of state. As a result of the accident, the family member was arrested and needs money for bail.
They usually want the money sent by Western Union.
Police say contact your family member to confirm they were involved.
Do not send money. Check with your family, and then contact police.
