Devoted Dog Breeder Caught in Grandparent Scam

This is Susan Ware. Susan has worked all her life for the benefit of dogs of all breeds but especially Flat Coated Retrievers. Susan is a senior citizen, living with her remaining three dogs.

Now Susan has been caught in a grandparent scam and lost all her savings. If you are unfamiliar with this despicable fraud, elderly people are contacted by a person masquerading as a close relative, usually a grandchild, claiming to be in some kind of trouble and needing a large amount of cash. You can read more about this type of fraud here .

In Susan's case, the fraudsters claimed to be her grandson who was a passenger in a car that was stopped by police. A large number of drugs were found and he had been charged with trafficking (none of this was true of course). Susan says they knew a lot about her grandson and were very convincing. She withdrew all her money from the bank and turned it over to a "courier" that came to her house to collect it.

Susan's Daughter Caroline added:

"The victim of fraud for this GoFundMe is my mother, a widow of 30 years, 83 years of age left with nothing after this scam. Aside from being frauded, the emotional distress has been far more than she can take. Financially it has been very delicate as my mother was nearing the end of a reverse mortgage, this fraud has truly depleted her funds to nil. Any generosity would be greatly appreciated in this difficult time."

Please help in any way you can to prevent this tragedy from happening to this wonderful lady who has helped so many.
