The never-ending battle against scammers

Dan Wyson

When a bully appears on the playground he is often met with the phrase, “Go pick on someone your own size.” I find it interesting that the expression doesn’t find any fault with picking on someone. It only focuses on the fairness of the target. Children seem to naturally understand fairness.

Adults understand fairness too. For this reason, crimes against someone who is not able to defend themselves can bring a harsher punishment. This is the case with many crimes against the elderly. Some criminals specifically target senior citizens because our bodies and often minds are known to decline with advanced age. I recently had a senior share a sad story with me that I will briefly recount here in hopes someone else might be spared a similar loss. This was a classic scam, with so many red flags.
