FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. -The Flagler County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about a telephone scam that has already cost several senior citizens a lot of cash.

A 92-year-old Palm Coast man wired $1,500 to Mexico City this week, after getting a call that his grandson had been arrested there.

The caller later tried to get an additional $12,000 but family members intervened.

In April, an elderly couple wired almost $1,600 after someone called to say a family member had been detained in Mexico.
