FBI: Scams Target Families of Central American Children Captured Along U.S. Border

The FBI is investigating two scams that target some of the families of the tens of thousands of Central American children who have been captured recently trying to sneak into the U.S., Al Jazeera America reports.

The telephone scams involve asking families for money for phony travel costs.

“One fraud scheme involved individuals who claimed to be representing a charitable or non-profit organization, which they claimed assists in processing and reuniting the children with their families,” Special Agent Michelle Lee told Reuters.

The scam has bilked families out of hundreds and even thousands of dollars, the FBI said.

The FBI is warning Texans to be skeptical of people claiming to be nonprofit workers.
