It is a horrid thing how these people prey on the elderly. There are so many victims you never hear about.

I was taking my Mom shopping once before we had to put her in a retirement home. Two men approached us in the parking lot, with a song and dance about exchanging checks with my mom, because they needed the money and the bank wouldn't cash their check. Mom actually hesitated, and seemed ready to do what they asked. I jumped in their faces, and said--do you think we are that STUPID?! I pulled out my phone, and said, I'm calling the cops right now. They vanished in a hurry. I'm sure they continued trying....small town with many elderly folks.
