My grandpa just lost $1400 after cashing in his and my grandma's SS checks. He walked down to the bank this morning, and was followed home. He's 87 years old...I don't know what he was thinking. He was choked from behind, then the mugger put his hand into my grandpa's pant pocket, taking out the envelope with all the cash. He ripped my grandpa's pant leg and left a lot of scratches on his leg, but other than that he seems ok...a little shaken up but ok.
The good news is that the mugger dropped a photo of himself. I heard from my aunt the the photo had a house with an address on it, with the person standing in front of the house. Hopefully justice will be served. What sucks so bad is that that's all the money they get for a month.
