A little fact-checking might've helped a Glen Park mother from essentially throwing away thousands of dollars this week. According to SF Weekly, 'A San Francisco woman living in Glen Park received a call from a man who said he was in Spain. The man told the woman that authorities has her son in custody and that she needed to bail him out. The cost: $2,800." And what did she do? She sent this stranger $2,800 via Western Union. However, a phone call later to her daughter-in-law, well after sending the money, proved that her son was just fine. Good grief. [SFW]
