This same scam happened to my first cousin, who is in his 80's and in mental decline. They went to Western Union to send the money, but they wouldn't accept credit card. Went home to get checkbook, and their daugher was fortunately home and stopped the scam.

On a related subject, was talking to a lawyer friend/inlaw a couple of weeks back. The subject of jury duty came up. He said they gather all info possible from social sites and other internet sources on potential jurors to use in the voir dire questioning.
