When it so easy to scam street-wise businessmen, imagine the threat to senior citizens and people with few skills or training. Yesteday received a call from the Kingston, Jamica scam artists (876-406-2280) giving us the great news that we had won $2.5 million and a new car. All we needed to do was send a few hundred dollars to them by Western Union. The fact that I played with them for 10 minutes or so before hanging up must have angered the guy who thought he had found an easy mark. He called back a minute later to utter an obscenity. My wife thought we should report it to the RNC but I said they probable get a few dozen of these a day and have virtually no way to deal with them. You would think, of course, that once a phone number has been linked with a scam operation, Bell Canada would be able to block all calls coming into the country from that number.
