ELDERLY GRANDMA LOST HER SAVINGS OF $60K, SCAMMERS LEFT HER WITH LESS THAN $1

My grandmother of 78 years old, just got her bank account filled with her life savings/retirement wiped out by some overseas scumbag and her trusted nurse who may be a accomplice.

Long story short, my grandmother’s son is overseas in Malaysia and need some money, no problem here just parent sending some financial aid, and because she did not consult anyone of her family members about sending money overseas, she asked her Nurse. And guess what, the nurse “helped” her to send money to her son by asking for her bank details. Sure some of you may call her stupid but, the nurse has been taking care of her for a good 14 years, she is a nurse who was close to the family..

The found out she got scammed when she checked her acc and realized it is less than $1, and multiple transactions went through without her knowing, amounting to $60k+ all gone in a span of 1 hour.

Called the bank and the bank just said “we can track that the account belongs to someone in Thailand according to the exchange rate that is recorded”, and recommended us to contact the police to get a statement recorded and to forward to the bank.

Called the police and a investigation officer simply told us this”because the money has been sent overseas already, it is out of our jurisdiction, meaning we have no power over this case, best I can do is send to interpol, just don’t expect the money to come back”. (Yes, he actually said “just don’t expect the money to come back”)

I know it makes sense but it also just didn’t seem appropriate especially when my Grandma is already crying her eyes out and that sentence just broke her. The IO didn’t even try to comfort or say things like he will try his best. He just say “don’t expect the money to come back”

It is today that I realize, if you scam someone money, just migrate and you won’t get arrested lmao. To the overseas scammers and your mules, screw you and your ancestors.

You can literally trust no one but yourself in this world.
