A scammer tried to convince a victim at the El Quetzal Grill that he needed to immediately pay an enormous "overdue power bill," Manassas Park Police said.

Here's the story of Marlene Konkoly, who found creative ways to spend less and save more so she can retire at 50. This story is the first in our series about Extreme Savers.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, fewer than half of Americans even know how much money they would need to retire. And nearly a third of employees who had access to a defined contribution plan such as a 401(k) did not …
