-- TMZ has an article about Kurt Angle looking to hunt down a scammer from the Dominion Republic who convinced his 80-year-old mother to send $4,000. According to the report, the scammer claimed that her grandson was in a local jail and demanded $4,000 or threatened "severe consequences." After sending the money, she received another call demanding another $4,000, which was when she contacted Kurt.
"I'm gonna find the son of a b---h who did this to my mom," said Kurt. "I don't want this happening to anyone else!"
As it turns out, her grandson is fine and he hasn't even been to the Dominican Republic in over a year. Kurt believes that there is an accomplice working for the scammer in the Pittsburgh area since they knew about his family and his mother's unlisted phone number.
