Have you heard about the "grandparent scam"? The BBB just sent a warning last week, but it was too late for one Charlotte area grandmother, who answered a phone call from who she thought was her grandson. He said, "grandma, I'm in jail and need money," then handed the phone to a man who claimed to be his attorney. Of course, the grandmother complied and bought $3,000 worth of green cards to send the caller. It's a scam you should warn your elderly loved ones about.
US intelligence officials tonight say they have circumstantial evidence showing Russia provided the weapons to the separatist rebels, enabling them to shoot down Malaysia Airlines flight 17. They say the weapon likely came from this base in Southwestern Russia.
