Families with children at Montgomery County Public Schools are being warned about a virtual kidnapping scam that has already impacted multiple people in the last week.
Several schools in Montgomery County have sent home letters warning about virtual kidnappings, a type of phone scam that tries to convince victims that a loved one – in this case a child – has been kidnapped and will be harmed unless a ransom is paid.
The scammer calls from an unfamiliar number, possibly from an international area code, according to a letter sent to parents. The caller then claims that they have the victim’s child and some victims have reported hearing screaming in the background.
