Fooled out of funds

Cops are investigating a Bergen Beach senior’s claims that he was fooled into giving money to a man claiming to be his nephew in desperate need of bail money.

The 84-year-old East 66th Street resident told cops that he received a panicked call on May 18 from a man who identified himself as the man’s nephew. The man told him he was in trouble with the law and needed $1,800 wired to him.

The senior sent the money, only to learn later that the nephew-in-question was never in trouble nor had called his uncle.

Where: 2700 East 66th Street
