Santa Fe County deputies say three elderly people were scammed out of nearly $50,000. 

In one case, scammers called a 74-year-old woman pretending to be with a timeshare property she had. They told her they could rent it out, and she would make money if she agreed to pay for fees. 

The victim is now out $30,000. 

Deputies say a 69-year-old man and a 79-year-old woman were scammed in two similar incidents. 

Deputies are warning people not to send anyone money without doing research first.
