Another scam pulled on grandparents, reported on NBC

On the NBC Today show today, another scam was exposed: people troll the Internet (especially social networking sites) to look for family relationships, and then call elderly people pretending to be a grandson in jail, needing money to get out on bail. It’s unbelievable that they can play on sympathy this way, and even tell the “grandparents” not to tell the parents. “Today” simulated one of these calls.
