Men are Victims of Scams

Two elderly men are victims of scams that are making their way through the region again.

State police say 86-year-old Harold Howard of Port Allegany was convinced by someone that he won $5 million and a car, but had to pay to have the car transferred to him. He sent large sums of money but didn’t receive any money or a car in return.

82-year-old Junior Baker of Genesee was contacted by a person who told him he needed to pay for his grandson’s legal fees. He sent a large amount of money and later realized it was a scam.

Anyone with information on either of these scams is asked to contact Coudersport-based state police.
