Rio Grande Fruit!!

Keddy,
The only fruit that I know of grown down by the Rio Grande is oranges!!! The locals couldn't be bothered to pick these as they aren't worth a penny.

Grouser..........Yes there are some people that will fall for this stunt out there. My concern is the elderly amongst us who do not know any better. On the news the other night one poor chap was virtually in tears as the scammers had fleeced his elderly mother of (I think) £20,000. Scum! :twisted:
