Hibbing, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A phone scam is circulating in the Northland. If you receive a call to send money out of the country to help a stranger's grandchildren, it's likely a scam.
The St. Louis County Sherrif's office in Hibbing has taken several complaints from the public about the phone scam.
The scam artists have the elderly victim wire money to a bank in another country, or they get the person's credit card information.
Authorities warn people not to comply with the request, and to contact police.
