Police investigate South San Francisco scam targeting elderly residents

Police in South San Francisco are investigating an incident in which two men scammed an elderly victim out of money.

On Oct. 14, a man approached the elderly South San Francisco resident and convinced the victim to meet up with another man, according to the South San Francisco Police Department.

The suspects then told the victim they would give him money one of the men had just inherited from a relative in South Africa.

Once the victim gave the money to the men, they fled the scene. When the victim realized what had occurred, he reported the incident to police.

Police described the first suspect as about 60 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. The second suspect is described as about 50 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall and 150 pounds.
