  2. I really can't get over what scam artists there are out there (and this is not one of the better examples of a good one) but, even more, how people continue to fall for this stuff!
    The worse ones are when people call people on the phone and ask for SSNs and the person actually gives it to them. Hello? Did you just fall off the stupid truck?
    Unfortunately, I guess there are a lot of people out there still who just aren't informed; sadly, many of them are elderly. My Grandpa T. used to get taken in my scammers all the time (until my dad took over his finances!)
