A group of scam artists who defrauded seniors across the U.S. and Canada out of millions of dollars with phony calls from grandchildren in trouble have been busted by police in Toronto.

Hundreds of senior citizens -- most of them American -- were swindled out of some $3 million after responding to calls from people they believed were their grandchildren in desperate need of money, AARP reported.
