That is terrible. They try ti take advantage of the elderly because they are most trusting of others. I am glad your mom got to the bottom of it. I hope they catch them.

Did they call on your Grandma in person, or were they on the phone? Either way, these people need to be stopped.

Several years ago somebody called my Aunt's sister here saying that my Aunt just had an accident while driving in New Jersey and they were asking $1,000 for her hospitalisation. She came to us and told us about this, so I immediately sent a message to my cousin and she told me this: Mom hasn't been driving for so many years!

I am totally sick of these fraudsters. But, here nobody takes care of such things. What all I do is just cancel the membership and to take it again with a different email address. Sometimes, the site itself haves like a big scammer.

Beware that some artists using their name for their own business without consent. This will lead to scam as well.
