An 86-year-old lady was driven to her credit union to withdraw half of her life savings, police say to satisfy scammers.

They could also take you or someone you know for a ride.

We’re not showing her face, or saying her name.

Police say they did a great job, on this scam.  They sprayed some sealant and made a mess with overspray on the side of the house, and the garage.

Then the terms changed to $58 dollars a gallon and a total of $4,000.

Surveillance video from the victim’s credit union shows the 2 guys in the scam drive her there to make a cash withdrawal – even helping her with her walker and oxygen tank to make the withdrawal.

She gave them the cash and they drove her home.

She says she didn’t call police at the time because she didn’t have her cell phone in her pocket.

She didn’t say anything to the teller at the credit union when she could have.

She and the cops want these two guys, driving a new ford pickup with a crew cab, caught.
