Scammers are stooping to an all new low.

A Bath man was nearly the victim of a new scam last week. The man was told by the scammers that they had kidnapped his daughter and demanded ransom money. The man thought he could hear his daughter screaming in the background. Police in Gardner where contacted to check on his daughter who was fine and unaware of the situation.

Police determined the number used was the same one used in similar types of incidents throughout the country. That number is 52 656-322-5469.

Here's a more detailed description of the event from Bath Police.
