Wednesday at six, we showed you how scammers cheated an elderly woman out of her life's savings in a driveway paving scam.

We hear about seniors getting scammed all the time. It's quite different to actually see it happen.

The outrage spurred some of our viewers to spring into action and minutes after our report aired offers to help started pouring in to our newsroom.

Curtis Jackson reports on how our viewers are stepping up to help out a woman who was taken by two scammers in the video player above.

Police are still searching for the men behind the scam. If you know who they are, call police in Waterford.
