WALLA WALLA - Police have responded to several reports of telephone scams preying on the elderly.

According to Walla Walla Police detectives, the caller will say he or she is in a jail in Canada or Mexico and needs bail money. The caller attempts to convince the victim to wire money.

Another angle the caller will use is to say a vehicle has broken down or there has been a collision and money is needed.

Once the funds are transferred, the money is quickly picked up, making it difficult to stop the theft.
