Scammer threatens to murder family in Forsyth County


August 12, 2013
CUMMING, Ga. — Someone called a man and said if he didn't pay $500, his parents would be shot, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

On July 28, a man told officers he got a call at about 2:30 p.m. from someone who was threatening to harm his family.

The caller told the victim several men were surrounding his parent's house in Puerto Rico and would shoot them if he did not send a $500 money transfer. The man then went to a store and sent a MoneyGram as instructed.

The man thought the money would be picked up in Puerto Rico, but MoneyGram customer service said the money was picked up somewhere in the United States.

The man called his parents, but they said they were unaware of any threats against their safety.

Officers said this situation has been previously documented as a phone scam.
