[QUOTE=Donna D.;243599]I can think of a couple of reasons people fall
for this. 1) Not being informed about this type of scam. 2) which leads to making quick, heart felt decisions.
My own parents, who are quite elderly, lead a pretty sheltered life... would fall 100% for this. They only have one granddaughter who's their pride and joy. My Mom would give anything anyone asked if she thought it was necessary to help her granddaughter.
This is why I posted on this site not that it has anything to do with fiberglass . but I know that if I had known of this sort of scam the phone call wouldn't have lasted as long. But i stayed on the line for some time before my mind settled down to the facts and after a few personal questions I knew this was not my Grandson.As per the net some 3and 1/ 2
million has been lost by older folks who fell for this.
