86 year old doesn't fall for phone scam

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) --  An 86-year-old woman is hoping to warn others about scam phone calls that may be targeting senior citizens.

The Madison woman received two phone calls last Friday from men claiming to be with the Las Vegas based International Lottery. She hung up on both of them.

The Madisonian retired from the University of Wisconsin and says former colleagues have received similar calls as well.

She told police she hopes everyone in her generation is properly warned about these con artists.
