A new approach which is lucrative for the scammers.

From the link within the article.

Quote:
Floridians lost $444,000 last year using MoneyGram wire transfers as a result of 293 scams that targeted vacationers' relatives,


Quote:
Nationwide, unknowing victims of the grandparent scam used MoneyGram to wire $20.5 million to con artists in 2012, the company said. MoneyGram said it prevented $14 million worth of those transfers and returned that money to the victims.


Quote:
Consider a massive grandparent scam last year in Central Florida that bilked an elderly man out of $816,000, according to a Seminole County Sheriff's Office report.
ffs Evil or Very Mad
