Kurt Angle Hunting Down International Scammers That Stole $4000 From His Mother

TMZ is reporting that Kurt Angle is hunting down international scammers that conned his mom out of $4,000.

According to their report, Angle’s mother received a call from someone in the Dominican Republic who claimed her grandson was in a local jail and needed $4000 or the consequences would be severe. Angle’s mother wired them $4000 from Pittsburgh and thought everything would be fine until she received a call the next day, asking for another $4000.

Kurt stepped in and discovered the family member was fine and contacted local authorities over the situation. According to the FBI, Angle’s mother is one of many victims being target by international scammers who prey on the elderly.

“I’m gonna find the son of a b—- who did this to my mom,” Angle told TMZ.

    I hate to say this, but I don’t really feel sorry for people who fall for this kinda stuff…

    I hope he finds them and makes them pay because sadly most of these types of ppl go unpunished. I had my credit info stolen several years ago and it was pure hell getting it worked out, i wanted to press charges but was told they were from another country and there was nothing i could do.

    If she does get the money back can Dixie really afford to lose those numbers from the Victory Road buyrate?

    Lol, Angle's mom is a moron. Hey, lemme wire this stranger $4000…lol!!

      I don't know if I would have used the word "moron" but why would anyone wire some random stranger $4K? If you call my house asking for any amount of money, I'm hanging up the phone and I hope everyone here would do the same.

    She's 80 years old. Give her a break. It's not like it happened to a 25 year old. If it happened to a tech savvy person it would be different.

    Kurt why would your mum give 4G away like that? Bit stupid I think. Naturally would you not call someone like a family member to check if it’s for real.

    …is it a good time to say ‘lol’?
