Hometown heroes at the Pig
Catherine Nielander (left) and Elaine King worked together to prevent a 90-year-old Camden woman from falling victim to the grandma scam for a second time. Because of their efforts to contact the womans family, she only lost money from the first transfer. Both King and Nielander are long-time employees of the Camden Piggly Wiggly and agreed that they were just doing their job by preventing the second transfer.
In late January, two Piggly Wiggly employees went above and beyond to aid an elderly customer who had fallen victim to the “Grandma Scam.” “They were just angels,” said the 90-year-old Camden women. After being a victim to the scam, she said she wished not to be named in the paper.
