GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) – The Garden City Police Department is investigating a kidnapping scam. The department said that over the last several days, victims report that they are being contacted by phone.

The caller states that they have kidnapped their child or family member. The caller then requests money wired for the safe return of the child or family member.

Officials said you should always treat this type of call serious, and it is a good idea to confirm the safety of the alleged kidnapped person but do not send money.

If you have any questions, call the Garden City Police Department.
