Grandmother Target Of Scam

An 84-year-old Jamestown grandmother was scammed out of $524 dollars when a grifter pretending to be her grandson called and said he needed bail money.

The woman wired the money to a Western Union office in Modesto. Investigators say this scam has been around a while and targets the elderly. They urge people never to wire or send anyone money unless you are absolutely sure who they are.
