— An elderly woman reported to police Thursday that she might have been the victim of an attempted scam.

Two women approached her at about 2 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of Pick 'n Save, 1717 Center Ave., and showed her a bag they said they had found. They said it was full of money. They asked her if the bag was hers.


The woman said it wasn’t hers. She felt something was amiss, so she called police.


Janesville police Lt. Keith Lawver agreed there was probably something underhanded going on.


"It's a good idea that lady called us," Lawver said.
