A 92-year-old woman asked to be taken to a bank, where she was going to withdraw $ 25. According to her, this had to be done to pay off the debt to the tax service. Earlier, someone called her posing as an employee of the fiscal department.

Singh shared his doubts with the woman and she allowed him to call back to a suspicious number. The one who picked up the phone was not happy to communicate, and after a second call he blocked the number. After that, the taxi driver convinced his passenger to change the route in order to call at the police station first.

“Raj pleaded with the woman to reconsider her decision, so they went to the Roseville police station to talk to the officer,” the police station describes in a post on its Facebook page. The conversation with the officer worked, and the woman believed that she was being deceived.
