Cyber scammers swiped $4,600 from a Sacramento grandmother who thought she was helping out her granddaughter. Pat Blucher got a frantic phone call indicating that her granddaughter had been arrested in Canada. The caller laced the conversation with family facts and personal information that Blucher believed was lifted off her Facebook page. Turns out that her granddaughter was not in trouble, but Grandma had already wired thousands to Canada.
