Letters to the Editor

Just because I’m old doesn’t mean I’ll fall for a phone scam

There is a societal element that thinks all seniors are stupid. First were calls stating that I was being sued by the IRS and that I needed to supply them with my Social Security number. Yeah, right!

Now I am getting calls saying that I have received collect calls and need to provide my credit card number in order to complete the calls. Yeah, I am going to give some idiot my credit card number — not!

Seniors, beware.
