I really hate to insult the scam victim because she's elderly, but damn! How in hell could someone fall for such an obvious scam? A woman was putting her groceries in the car when another woman walks up to her and says she found a bag of treasury bonds by her car. The woman then tells the victim she knows an accountant across the street who can process and cash in the bonds, but he needs $3,000 up front. So, she writes a check. The con woman tells her that an armored truck will stop by the victim's house and deliver the money. The victim gives the con woman her address. Well, needless to say no armored truck no cash. So, she calls and wants a report. Good thing I didn't take that call. I'd have a hard time masking my disbelief.
