Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who would fall for it because "it's my grandchild".
I wonder what WalMart thinks about this? After all, the scam artists are telling the victims to do their business thru WalMart. Don't know what they could do about it, unless they require somebody to prove why they're wiring money, but I don't think it would be good public relations for their name to be used in connection with a scam.

I know I would not fall for that scheme because I don't have any grandchildren yet!

Be very careful of all scams...Over the phone or on the innernet....Never give your credit card #. If it sounds too good to be true you can believe it is.
Also beware of free trips, or timeshare presentations. Believe me they are a scam also...
The Country is full of false scams. Don't be a victim. If in doubt check on the rip-off.com website. There is lots of info there....

SBE.... WalMart or Any Company requiring me to prove WHY i am wiring money to anyone or anywhere? It is no one's business but mine why i chose to wire money to anyone.
