A North Dakota father received a piece of horrible news that left him searching for options after a private phone number reached out to tell him that his son, a Marine, had been killed while on active duty.

That phone call — which turned out to be scam — seemed legitimate until the person on the other end asked for his Social Security number.

The article goes on to state the following:

“They wanted to know when and where I wanted him buried and how soon, and then they would call me back,” said the father, John Stautz, according to Valley News Live.

The scammer claimed to be a United States Marine Corps representative and said Staultz’s son was killed in a “live-fire practice.”
