Two Easton residents hung up on callers when they realized they were being targeted for scams.
Police said a woman with an accent called a Center Road resident and told her that her computer had a virus, but she could fix it ...
Suspecting fraud, the homeowner told police she hung up on the caller.
In another incident, a Sport Hill Parkway woman answered her phone and heard a voice at the other end say, "Hi grandma!"
The woman is not a grandmother, so she hung up on the caller.
These are two popular scams. In the first one, someone calls people saying they have a computer virus but it could be fixed if they provide their log on information and Social Security number. In the other one, a criminal pretends to be a grandchild in trouble who needs money to be wired right away.
