Bismarck police say a con man convinced an 86-year-old Bismarck woman to wire him $200 to the Dominican Republic through Western Union.

The woman says the man called her claiming to be her grandson.

The man said he had been in a car accident and was now in jail.

The woman realized she'd been tricked and reported the fraud to the Bismarck Police Department around 7 p.m. Wednesday.
