Scam, ONLY send money to people you know.
They reviewed in detail the grandmother grandfather scam.
This scam is perpetrated by criminals calling grandparents and frightening them with a terrible story about their grandchild. This usually has to do with a phony DUI charge, and the criminal calling you, demands money immediately or something dreadful, will happen to the grandchild. Unfortunately many grandparents have been scammed out of their hard earned savings.
Don't send money to anyone you don't know. If you receive call such as this, it is best to contact your grandchild immediately to check on his or her welfare. If there is still some concern, call your personal legal representative and ask for help.
