The Crime of the Century

This is not about the death penalty. I'm sure regardless of how we feel about capital punishment, we can all agree this guy deserves it.

Grandparents Lose Thousands To Fake Grandson
By George Mallet
PLYMOUTH—The scared voice on the phone sounded just like Bob and Carol Grimes 24 year old grandson, Nick.

“Grandpa I’m in big trouble,” the caller said. He went on to say he had been drinking and was involved in an accident in Canada. He said he was locked up and could avoid a felony charge if his grandparents would wire him $4,200.

“The fact that he was in such trouble and in jail in Canada,” said Carol Grimes. “I just couldn’t even fathom.”

The Grimes didn’t waste any time. They went to their Plymouth bank and got the cash the man they thought was their grandson requested. Then they went to Wal-Mart to get an International Money Transfer or Money Gram. Soon, the money was on the way to Canada.


As far as I'm concerned, this is up there with murdering a child and impersonating a doctor.
