Amherst and Northampton Police are warning about scams after residents lost money to phony emails and phone calls. In Amherst, police say a woman received an email that appeared to be from a friend asking that $250 be wired to the Philippines. After sending the money, the woman learned the email was a so-called “stranded traveler” hoax, and her friend’s account had been hacked. In Northampton, an elderly woman got a call from a man claiming to be her relative, saying he needed to be bailed out of jail. The 86 year old wired nearly $4,000 to an account traced to South America.
