It's not just the elderly and uneducated who get sucked in to the burgeoning number of on-line, telephone, mail or in person scams.
Perry writes about a Dexter woman hooked on one of those "cash this check" scams that seems too good to be true because it is.
It's a constant struggle. Like Perry, I am old enough to be wary, but the biggest challenge I face is the telephone. I keep a land line at the bar for emergencies and to keep an identity. I also don't want to call employees on their cell while working as I want to discourage use of that too.
But the calls a business gets are endless, and as much as I say 'just hang up' , I still grapple with employees who get sucked in to surveys and discussions of this and that.
I wish Eric Schneiderman would do something about it as soon as he cleans up all that fantasy football stuff.
