In May, San Francisco police nabbed a trio of alleged crooks who had lured dozens of elderly, Asian women in the Sunset neighborhood with a bizarre ghost scam, in which they convinced the victims to hand over their money and valuables.
But even with those suspects behind bars and awaiting trial, more elderly Asian women have reported being victims of this very scam in recent weeks, according to police.
Sgt. Michael Andraychak says in the most recent cases, the suspects were also reportedly Asian females, preying on elderly females in the North Beach neighborhood. Police have put out this video to warn the Asian community of these scams.
