She paid $15,000 thinking her son had to post bail. It was a scam.
A swindler duped an 87-year-old Hackettstown, New Jersey, woman into sending him $15,000 by convincing her the money would post bail for her son, town police reported. The woman received a call from a man identifying himself as her son, police said in a news release. He apparently didn't sound like her son, but explained it away by saying he had a cold.
