Boston Police report a Boston senior citizen in District D-4 (Back Bay, South End, Fenway) was scammed out of $9,500 on Friday by some guy who called him claiming to be a lawyer representing his nephew, who was allegedly in a car crash in Providence and needed the money immediately for bail:
The victim was instructed by the suspect to withdraw money from a bank and go to the Post Office, put the money in a box from the Post Office, and someone would come collect the money from him. The victim stated that an unknown black male in a white motor vehicle arrived at his address and took the box containing the U.S. Currency. /blockquote>
