So the phone rang a few minutes ago, and I thought my editor was calling me… but it wasn’t.
“Who is this?”
I don’t have a grandson, so I hung up. It’s been years since we got this scam tried on us. I’m your grandson (name never volunteered), and I need bail money/need to pay off a loan/gimme yo’ money, whatever.
Obviously what they’re trying to do is get hold of some hopelessly senile Joe Biden types and swindle them out of their money. Isn’t this shameful? It’s like the whole Western world sinks to a new low every day. They hope their victim doesn’t even remember whether he has a grandson or not.
Preying on the helpless. What kind of subhuman parasite does that?
I’ll bet we get nine or ten scam phone calls every day.
And then there’s Congress…
