Scammers swindle New Jersey grandmother out of thousands of dollars by posing as her grandson

GLOUCESTER, N.J. - An 82-year-old woman in Gloucester County, NJ said half of her savings are now gone after scammers pulled on her heartstrings.Libby Maurer of Deptford Township said she received a phone call on September 16. She believed it was her grandson on the line."I was so emotional that I didn’t think straight at all.

This person was hysterical crying on the phone and said I was in a car accident, I broke my nose and I have a split lip," said Maurer. "You need to call my lawyer, you need to get me out, don’t tell anybody."Maurer said the caller explained he was in a car crash with a woman who is eight months pregnant and, as a result, in jail.The caller instructed Maurer to dial a phone number for a public defender.

The man on the other line said bail was $80-thousand and she would need to pay ten percent in cash to bail her grandson out of jail.MORE LOCAL HEADLINES"I had fallen a couple weeks before, I said I haven’t driven in two weeks and I’m on oxygen 24-7, and he said you are the only one that can get it, and I was going to give him my credit card and he said no it has to be cash," said Maurer.Deptford Township Police detectives are investigating and said a key piece of evidence is surveillance video that shows the grandmother handing over the shoebox of cash.Maurer said the scammers told her to put the cash between two magazines and into the box."I mean where is the humanity in this crime. It’s an 82-year-old grandmother who is on oxygen.

She’s home alone. The suspect in this case really worked on her emotions," said Detective Corporal Robert Jones.

Police warn of new social media challenge that targets certain models of cars
PHILADELPHIA - Owners of certain Hyundai and Kia models are being advised to take special precautions securing their vehicles due to a rash of thefts that has been sweeping cities across the nation.The Lower Moreland Police Department in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania issued a warning Wednesday that a new TikTok challenge "encourages teens and young adults to break into these cars and steal them." Videos shared on social media demonstrated how the ignition systems in mainly 2011-2021 Kias and 2015-2021 Hyundais with physical keys could be easily hacked using a screwdriver, pliers or the end of a USB cable, because the vehicles are not equipped with immobilizers that require the presence of a key fob with a transponder to work.MORE LOCAL HEADLINESNo local cases have been reported, but the Lower Moreland Police Department suggested that owners of the targeted vehicles might consider using a steering wheel locking device. "It’s pretty much just hot-wiring a car with no hot wiring required," said David Young, a Software and Car Analyst.The problem first came to the nation's attention in Milwaukee last year, where over 5,700 of the brands' cars were stolen through November, according to authorities. Additional cities followed, including Columbus, Ohio, where Kias and Hyundais have accounted for 38% of all thefts so far this year.Both Kia and Hyundai released statements about the rash of thefts:"Kia America is aware of the rise in vehicle thefts of a subset of trim levels.
