New York woman, Laura Grasso, was scammed by 2, 10-year-old kids via Venmo

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that New York woman, Laura Grasso, was scammed by 2, 10 year old kids. 

They walked up to her acting like they were lost, borrowed her phone & sent $1,000 to themselves on Venmo.. they didn’t call anybody. “police told me, ‘You gave them your phone. Why would you let a stranger use your phone?’”

Laura Grasso was strolling through Central Park late last month when the young swindlers approached her, said they were lost and asked to borrow her phone to call their mom.

“These thieves are getting really f—ing savvy.” Grasso, 29, told The Post. 

The account used the name “@BLM201” — and identified itself on the money transfer app as a “fun raising business” — has since been removed.

"I was in complete shock – utter disbelief,” Grasso said. “Then I got scared because what if it wasn’t just Venmo? What else could they have done on my phone?”

She first went to the 19th Precinct on East 67th Street, where police told her she was the third person that day July 30th, who said they were swindled by a pair of minors who conned their way into victims’ Venmo accounts.
