Don’t fall sucker to the evil scammers
HAVING a “suckers list” postcode, I receive a considerable amount of scam mail and telephone calls promising me that I have won thousands of pounds or they have the answer to my health problem.
I am of an age where I am able to avoid such scams and take action if possible.
But it doesn’t stop these faceless people from moving on to their next victim, which is why I consider Marilyn Baldwin OBE to be a true hero in her campaign to prevent others becoming victims of such practices.
Marilyn still has the 30,000 letters sent to her mother, all promising something for a “fee”. One doesn’t have to elderly to become a victim of these scammers, as they work on those who deem that you can get something for nothing.
These evil people are relentless in their efforts to extract money from whoever is gullible enough, the details of whom are placed on a “sucker list” to be targeted by new scammers, who want to enjoy the high life while their victims probably struggle to pay for the basics.
Some may grumble at the cost of the Nottingham Post but it can save you thousands, as it highlights those who are convicted of these hideous crimes.
So, readers check out THINK JESSICA for further advice for your elderly relatives or those who you feel vulnerable to such scams
