QUINCY -- Quincy police say a telephone scam is circulating in the community again.

The Quincy Police Department said residents have reported receiving phone calls saying a family member has been injured or in an accident while out of town or abroad. They are asked to send money to someone so they can help the family, and a person will get on the phone posing as the family member and confirming the story.

The department encourages residents to contact their family member directly or another family member to confirm the story before even thinking of sending any money.
