Dallas Corvette Club Steps Up to Help Elderly Scam Victim


At the holidays, it’s always nice to hear about a good deed.

Since this is a Corvette blog, it’s even nicer to report the good deeds of a Corvette club in Dallas, Texas.

After hearing that a great-grandmother was scammed out of almost $1,000, the Unique Corvette Club of Dallas-Fort Worth decided to make Christmas brighter for Ola Donalson, revving up their motors to bring money and prayers to her home on Saturday.

A woman in medical scrubs came to her home and told Ola her doctor sent her to talk to her about a new walker. While she was there, the woman stole nearly $1,000 in cash and money orders – funds Ola needed to pay her rent.

Soon, Ola and her family figured out it was just a con job, and Ola was ready to give up.

Once the Unique Corvette Club heard about her plight, though, they shifted their high-powered motors into gear and quickly drove into action.

“This could be my mother. It could be my grandmother. Any of these guys’ mom. And this is just something we just couldn’t let go by without trying to do something,” said Keith King of the club.

Police say they are still investigating the crime but have not made any arrests.

Regardless, Ola is overwhelmed with the Corvette club’s generosity.

“I cannot believe that people have come together for me like that. I cannot believe that people have come together for me like this,” she said.

  1. Sad to think someone would do that to a elder. The Dallas Corvette Club knows the meaning of the Christmas. Well done. These are the kind of stories that get lost in all the negative news we are bombarded with daily.
