Getting the scammers


A grandmother from Long Island is being applauded for her quick thinking when a scammer allegedly called her with an alarming request.

Jean, who only wants her first name released over safety concerns, said a man called her on Thursday pretending to be her grandson and said that he had been arrested for drunk driving. 

“He starts calling me ‘grandma,’ and then I’m like, I don’t have a grandson that drives, so I knew it was a scam,” Jean told WCBS-TV.

Jean said she was a former 911 dispatcher and wasn't fooled at all.
