– According to TMZ, Kurt Angle is looking for a scammer from the Dominican Republic who got his mother for $4,000.
The scammer claimed that her grandson was in a local jail and demanded $4,000 or threatened “severe consequences.” She sent the first $4,000 and then was asked for another $4,000. That’s when she called 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.
