An elderly Excelsior district woman nearly fell for an all too common con job Monday — until bank employees came to her rescue, police said.
The woman said someone had recently called her and told her she had won “a huge prize” and had to send the prize distributor $1,250.00 for fees, police said. So she headed to the bank, they said.
“The woman went to her bank to withdraw the amount and was cautioned against it by the employees, who advised her to make a police report,” cops said.
And she did, so now she gets to keep her money, police said.
