Grandma Scammed, Everything Gone

Our grandmother June McEndree was recently scammed out of her entire life savings! She is in her late 80's and very trusting in people. She received  a phone call from her "grandson".  He told her he was in trouble and that he needed help to get out of jail in order not to lose his job and career. Our poor grandmother believed the scam artist and the entire made up story. She loves her grandchildren so much, she would do anything for them. She gave them access to what they wanted, and boom....just like that....they took her for all that she had :( She literally has $8 left in her account. The FBI has been involved in the case, but there is nothing they can really do at this point. It's all gone. 
Our family is doing our best to help her with her every day needs in order to get by, but if anyone would be so kind to donate to her, we would be forever grateful. She is devastated, as anyone would be in this situation. Any small amount will help her get her life back together! She deserves it! 
We also wanted to make this a warning and topic of discussion for anyone who has elderly parents, grandparents, friends, etc. These types of scams that are focused on our elderly are becoming more and more frequent these days, and it needs to stop! Educate your loved ones about this. The scammers really know what they are doing, so bring awareness to those who need it! 
Thank you everyone that has taken the time to read this, it's so important to get the message out there. June's children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren want to help her in the biggest way possible! We are all very sad and shocked by what happened. God Bless you and thank you for donating!
