6:06pm–#Fairfield CT– A Greenfield Street resident received a call that her son was kidnapped and “he would not be released until the gave them money”. Police and the detective bureau investigated and after a brief search found the son safe and sound.  The phone call originated from Puerto Rico.  This same scam happened last year to a Housatonic University student, police locked down a portion of downtown to find it too was a scam.    If you receive a call from area code 945 there is no area code in the United States and if you Google the area code it is host to a number of scams so be ware of that area code!
