I woke early today and meditated. Then, I noticed the red light on my phone was blinking. A message. Who could it be? Well, it seems once you turn 65, which my husband did recently, you go into the data base that says "people to scam". A voice, practiced casual, informed me that the shipping department was waiting to deliver my medical alert device that someone had ordered for me. The device and shipping were paid for. All was "free". Now, if I were elderly, disoriented, confused, and listened to this and had recently fallen, or been in the hospital, or wasn't on full mental alertness, which of course I am, I might have pushed 1 and been scammed and possibly experienced Identity theft.
You probably know about this, and who presses 1 anyway these days, but I have to be honest. In this moment, I am sending death ray thoughts out into the world to the people who prey on the elderly. How low does one have to go to do that?
