A Long Island grandmother outsmarted some scammers who were trying to steal thousands from her.
73-year-old Jean, a former 911 dispatcher, said she received a call from someone pretending to be one of her grandsons. The caller said he had been arrested for drunk driving and needed money to get out of jail. Jean knew she didn't have any grandsons who were old enough to drive but she decided to play along anyway. Once she told the scammer that she didn't know how to use Venmo to send money the scammer said he would send a bail bondsman to her house to get the money. That's where police were waiting to catch the scammer! Check out the takedown video below!
