‘They are lacking resources’; Shasta County elder abuse cases 09-03-2020

Published September 4, 2020

Last month, a Redding woman in her mid-80s received a call from a so-called attorney in New York who claimed to represent her grandson.

The caller said the grandson had been in a car crash and had been driving while intoxicated.

"I can't talk, but you're talking to my attorney, they're taking me to jail now," a voice in the background called out to the woman during the call.
