Grandma scammed, left with nothing

Tuesday, Sep 18, 2012

Betty Stapleton, 79, baked the cookies and bought the flowers. All she was waiting for was her granddaughter, Virginia, to show up at her Tucson home.

Betty thought that she had just paid to bail Virginia out of jail. Instead, she had unknowingly forked over a large sum of cash to some hungry thieves.

How much? $161,000. Her life savings and her retirement, all gone.
