A North Dakota father received a piece of horrible news that left him searching for options after a private phone number reached out to tell him that his son, a Marine, had been killed while on active duty.
That phone call — which turned out to be scam — seemed legitimate until the person on the other end asked for his Social Security number.
The article goes on to state the following:
“They wanted to know when and where I wanted him buried and how soon, and then they would call me back,” said the father, John Stautz, according to Valley News Live.
The scammer claimed to be a United States Marine Corps representative and said Staultz’s son was killed in a “live-fire practice.”
