It hard to believe that anyone would fall for that stuff but I guess they do since the scum keeps trying.

What gets my goat is the dang GOP texts I keep getting saying "we tried 16 times and you haven't replied". Dumb butts. They don't get the hint.

My scam of the day is the bank calling me and Informing me my card was ran through a skimming device yesterday at a gas pump when I filled up and the Jackwads thought they needed a new TV this morning from Best Buy. I’m not sure how to avoid this type of mess, it was a brand new huge gas station that stays packed so I don’t know. It sure ticks me off though..

My Mother-in-law got scammed out of about $8K. At first she said it was just $40, then it went to $200. After going through bank records and text messages it just kept going up. My daughter was the one that noticed grandma talking all secretive to someone and alerted us. We took her smart phone away from her and gave her a flip phone.
