You will want to be on the lookout for a scam in LaGrange County.

Residents have been getting calls claiming to be a child or grandchild in jail asking for bail money. They tell the victim to get a money gram at Wal-Mart or Western Union.

Police are trying to warn people that this is not legitimate.

If you do receive a call like this, verify who the person is by asking personal questions that only your relative would know.

Do not send money to someone you do not know.
