Give more warning about potential scam

This is in response to the April 25 story "Grandma swindled by scam." My husband and I were scammed Feb. 15, 2011, for $6,000. Our story is very similar regarding our grandson.

I understand this woman's outrage. What I do not understand is the Sheriff's Office saying it's a new scam. It's been going on too long.

It might be difficult to track, but why can't Western Union be instructed to inform people about the scam when they come to send money, or at least post a notice and suggest they read it.
