Letter To The Editor: ‘Grandma Calls’

Los Alamos

I guess because of my age, I continue to get scam “Grandma” calls.

I just got one that started with a male voice saying, “Hi Grandma”. When I asked which grandchild it was, I was told the oldest one. My oldest is female.

I asked him to tell me his name. He said, “are you kidding?” I said, “tell me your name”. That ended the phone call.

PLEASE, when you get one of these calls, insist they tell you their name. They know you are a grandparent but don’t know your grandkids’ names. 

These calls usually end by asking you to send money.
