Cecil Rodgers, a Cincinnati grandfather was looking forward to spending his Christmas with his grandchildren. When he received a call from his adult grandson, saying that he was in a serious legal tr-ouble. He said, he h*t a seven months’ pregnant woman’s car and the police have charged him $2300 for drunken and driving case and he is in jail right now. Then he handed over the phone to his lawyer.
He said he needed to go to a Walmart in Ohio and do a direct store to store transfer in Maryland. They will pay the bail. Till then he will try to get out his grandson and take him home.
No sooner, the grandfather, went to the bank and withdraw $2300 and headed to Walmart. But looks like, Roger’s have something else in his future. He chose a line, where Audrella Taylor was at the register.
He told her the whole story and he needs to transfer money as soon as possible. The Walmart employee, with the 5-year experience, immediately suspected, that he was being sc-ammed.
She told him, “I will not let you to send you the money and I am refusing the sender. I think you are sc-ammed”.
She advised him to go home and call his children and confirm this incident. When he called home, he came to know, there was no such problem and the grandson is safe at college.
Rodger thanked Taylor, for saving his money. The store manager said, “We are happy with Taylor and commended her for quick thinking”. But unfortunately, all grandparents are not that lucky.
