Grandparents Targeted by Phone Scammers Asking for Money
WASHBURN, Iowa -- It's a scam that many older Iowans have fallen for, but one grandmother wasn't going to let it get her. The Washburn woman got a strange phone call this week from a man claiming to be her grandson, begging for money to get out of jail. KWWL's Taylor Bailey said the woman wasn't falling for the scam, but listened to the caller's story anyway.
