        A fraud warning from the Fresno County Sheriff's Department.
        They're cautioning about a scam targeting the elderly.
        Twice, a suspect identified themselves as law enforcement. On February 10th a man called and demanded two payments of over $400 each from an 86-year-old woman.
        He threatened she would go to jail if she didn't pay him, she did not pay.
        The same day, an 85-year-old man received a similar phone call.
        In this case, the suspect defrauded the victim for more than $6,000.
        If you've received a similar call, contact police.
