BISMARCK, N.D. - A phone scam has cost an elderly Bismarck couple $14,000.
The seniors followed instructions from a caller who pretended to be their grandson.
That caller said he was in jail and needed $4,000 for bond in Best Buy gift cards.
After sending the money, the couple was called two more times by the same caller asking for another $10,000.
The couple was able to cancel some of the payments once they found out their grandson wasn't in jail.
