Friday evening, 5 News received a call from a woman in Bridgeport who told us she almost fell victim to a man who tried to scam her into wiring him some money.
She said that she had received a call from an unknown number Friday morning. When she answered it, the man claimed he was her nephew and that he had gotten into an accident. He then asked her to wire him some money.
If you receive a call like this, call your local police department to report it.
