I am a Faux Grandpa

Fortunately, for now, our kids are too young for their various grandparents to fall for this:

Delpha Speak has 13 grandchildren and she didn't think it was completely implausible that one of her grandsons-in-law would call her to say he was in trouble. The 72-year-old retiree could tell something was wrong, and she wanted to do whatever she could to help.

But it was that concern that almost caught her up in what the state attorney general's office said is a common scam targeting older folks.

Geeze. Now we're gonna have to get gramma her own safe word.
