4100 block of Briggs Avenue in Montrose, a man reported that he had received a phone call from a person who identified himself as his nephew. He stated he was in Florida and, while riding in an Uber ride share vehicle, he had been arrested and police found several pounds of marijuana located in the trunk of the vehicle. Another man then got on the phone and identified himself as an attorney representing his nephew. The victim was told to wire bail money to a Bank of America account. He was told to call the attorney back to let him know when the funds were transferred, which he did.

The money, according to the supposed attorney’s story, was to be refunded to the victim if the case was thrown out of court the next day. The victim waited a day then called the bank to find there had not been a refund. He then called his nephew who told him he had not traveled to Florida. The victim realized the phone call was a scam and called deputies.
