FORSYTH, Mont. - The Rosebud County Sheriff's Office put out an alert on Facebook Thursday, warning the public to be aware of a "Grandparents Scam" making the rounds.

The sheriff's office says when the scammer calls, they will say that your grandson is in jail. The caller will then say that you owe them thousands of dollars to keep your grandson out of prison.
