Police warn of phone scam targeting elderly

LAKE GENEVA -- Police in Lake Geneva are warning the public about a phone scam that appears to be targeting the elderly.

Investigators say they've taken several reports of people attempting to obtain the personal banking information of those elderly citizens. The scammers apparently phone your home claiming to be with the social security administration or other government entity and request your banking information. 

The Lake Geneva Police Department wants to remind citizens not to give any personal information over the telephone to anyone that the citizen does not initiate contact with to conduct business including financial matters.
