Some members of our community have received suspicious telephone calls from unknown person stating that your relative needs your help to obtain release from jail custody. The callers are usually very vague and request money in the $1,500 to $2,000 dollar range.
The caller sometimes acts as a family member and may say they are representing a family member. The callers usually have little information about the victim’s family, and when pressed for more information, will hang up.
Call the Purcellville Police if you receive one of these calls. Do not share personal information with anyone over the telephone, and do not send unknown subjects money.
