Trumbull Police are warning residents about a new scam circulating in the Trumbull area.
Two bogus "hostage scams" were reported in Trumbull this week. Residents said the caller claimed to have a family member and demanded a ransom of several thousand dollars. The caller, who police said had a Hispanic accent tells the victims to wire money to a specific location. The incidents occurred Feb. 4 and Feb. 5.
