LISLE – The DuPage County Sheriff's Office issued an advisory Tuesday warning residents of two suspects who recently scammed a senior victim.

At about noon Tuesday in unincorporated Lisle, a senior resident was outside when the victim was approached by an man and a boy, according to DuPage County Sheriff John E. Zaruba.
