Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

Didn't have a chance to ask for anything. I asked what his last name was and he hung up.

I laughed and told them I didn't have a Grandson and  hung up.

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

My call of the day was about the medical brace I requested. Unfortunately, I've never even discussed a brace with my doctor.

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

My whiney “grandson” called 3x; the last time I told him he was out of the will, and Pops and I hoped he rotted in Hell.   Hasn’t called since.

Got one today, 1/4 oz of holy water, for only 150.00.

They left a message, as I don’t answer unknown callers. 🧐

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

Within the last few months or so I've received so many scam calls and texts even. One was telling me to put in my Chase Bank password and I don't bank there.

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

My grandkids and I have a password known only to us (and their parents) to be used in such cases.

 

Did this long ago. I think all families should have passwords or codes.

Re: My grandson,Brian called me today

I have a friend who received one of these calls many months ago, and almost fell for it. Sometime shortly after I heard a news report it is a scam. BEWARE.

I had a call like that the other day.  The guy said "I'm calling about a brace for your back. You have pain in your back, is that correct?"  I said, no but I have a pain in my a$$.  Can you help me with that?  LOL  He hollared at me, "what you want me do for a$$?" then he hung up.
