I ran across this article today from Facecrooks and I wanted to share it with my readers. About a month ago, I heard of this same scam. I guess it is still happening so I wanted to make sure I made you aware of it. Apparently scammers are using social media to find out information about grandparents and then using that information to con them. The case I heard about is mentioned in this article. A grandmother by the name of Ruth Winter received a call from a con artist stating that her grandson was in jail and she needed to pay the bond money to get him out. Ms. Winter is quoted as saying “And instead of thinking, my grandma emotion overcame me.” She sent them the money per their request. Many of these scam artists are located overseas making it almost impossible to find and prosecute them.
