Kurt Angle is searching for the people who scammed his mother out of $4,000 after they convinced her a family member was in danger.
Angle told TMZ .. his mother received a call from someone in the Dominican Republic claiming her grandson was in a local jail and needed $4,000 immediately or the consequences would be really bad.
Angle’s mom wired the cash and thought everything would be fine then she got another call demanding an additional $4,000.
She couldnt afford to pay them so she contacted Angle, he had a feeling the whole thing was a scam and reached out to the family member who was supposedly in danger.
The family member who was supposedly in trouble was fine so Kurt contacted authorities.
According to the FBI, Kurt’s mom is just one of many victims being targeted by international scammers who prey on the elderly.
“I’m gonna find the son of a bitch who did this to my mom,” Angle told TMZ … adding, “I don’t want this happening to anyone else!”
