Bo­gus call­ers are low­est of the low

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - READERS' -

IT RE­ALLY is shock­ing that a bo­gus caller could tar­get a frail 81-year-old man.

But then, that’s what these cow­ards and crim­i­nals are all about, isn’t it? Pick­ing the easy tar­gets?

It doesn’t mat­ter to them if their vic­tim needs ev­ery penny they have af­ter a life- time of work­ing hard to pay their way in so­ci­ety. It doesn’t mat­ter if they leave vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple traumatised or afraid to an­swer their door.

Do they ever think that this is some­one’s grand­mother or grandad they are prey­ing on? How would they feel if that was their loved ones?

Bo­gus call­ers who fleece peo­ple in this cal­lous way are among the low­est of the low.

We can only hope that those who are caught don’t get a slap on the wrist but a long time in a jail cell to pro­tect in­no­cent folk.
