My Mom fell for $8,910. wire fraud scam this week. Three people impersonating my son, a L.A. County Public defender, and a Superior court judge managed to convince Nana to wire $2,970. on 3 consecutive calls. Mom thought it was my son when they called saying he had injured 3 people severely in a auto accident. She immediately went to the bank and wired the money to a recipient in Peru. She said he requested she not call me until he was released from jail. Nana honored his request. I am in shock that she fell for this. On the fourth call she became suspicious and immediately called her bank. Mom had just returned home from an outpatient colonoscopy procedure in which she received the anesthesia Propofol. The good news! The bank caught it in time. The funds were reversed back to my mother's account. What a relief.
