@hollysunshine , does this mean you didn’t bail Brian out of jail before his parents found out he was there!?!

 

How cruel!

Seems like this old world is going to heck in a hand basket. Don't know if it will do any good, but if the phone #  displayed, maybe call your local police.

Seems like they were really taking a shot in the dark by actually using a name!

My bro in law got that kind of call about their son in law. They were told to go to walmart and send $. Thankfully the clerk at WM told them it was probably a scam. My sister called him on the phone and he was at work.... not at all in trouble.

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

Crazy but I just had a call today from Trinidad telling me there was a check waiting for me and please call them back.  Yea!! Right!!

 

My husband is a retired FBI agent who give lectures on scams.  I can not tell you how many older folks have been scammed and lost money.  It is sad that you have to check your phone ID before you pick it up.  And make sure you never say the word " YES " while they are going through their scam, it could cost you plenty.

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

Our local news covered a story where the caller said the Brother had been kidnapped and they wanted ransom...........they were using the Brother's phone number!!!!!!!  Now that would be scary.

 

I got a call today from our local Hospital.  Dialed back and got a recording..."nummber not in service."

 

Scammers are getting so smart!
