VERSAILLES, Ind. (AP): State police say Indiana residents with grandchildren should be wary of an old telephone scam that has resurfaced. Sgt. Noel Houze says a couple in southeastern Indiana's Ripley County recently received a call from a woman who identified herself as their granddaughter and claimed to need bail money to get out of a jail in Canada. The couple wired her $2,000, and the woman called again asking for more cash. They then learned their real granddaughter was at home.
