Good News: Taxi Driver Senses A Scam, Helps Woman

Police in Quincy, Massachusetts are praising a taxi driver who stopped an elderly woman from being the victim of a scam.  Cab driver  Richard Spencer  picked up an 87-year-old woman who wanted to go to Walmart to buy gift cards for her grandson who she said was in trouble.

But the driver knew that story sounded familiar and warned her. Another driver had told Spencer that the same woman had already bought two gift cards for $2,000 each earlier that day and he recognized it as a “textbook grandparent scam.” He told her that it wasn’t her grandson, but someone posing as him, and instead of taking her to Walmart, he took her to the Quincy Police station, where officers confirm she was being scammed.
