RANTOUL -- A couple scammed out of their life savings is getting help from the community. Last summer, Chuck and Nancy Padilla were scammed out of $100,000.

In December, their grandson created an online fundraiser to help them start over. He raised nearly $7,000.

Now, others are pitching in. The Rantoul VFW held a benefit for the Padilla's. It raised more than $5,500.
