Green Bay Police Investigate Kidnapping Phone Scam

The Green Bay Police Department said they’re investigating a phone scam where callers threaten they have a loved one kidnapped. 
Lt. Paral with GBPD said three calls took place Friday at 11:38 a.m., 2:09 p.m. and 3:08 p.m. 
The caller demanded money saying they had the person’s “daughter”. 
The victims said one of the callers sounded like a person with a Hispanic accent, another thought one of the callers sounded African-American. The third victim said they were unsure. 
All the calls are coming from the same international phone number from Guadalajara, Mexico with the number 562.462.276.902.
Green Bay Police want to remind everyone to call police before any action is taken. Also, be aware phone scams happen all the time.
