One lady had driven over 300 miles to try to put money into a bank account several states away. The bank she needed to deposit at was a local community bank that did not have a presence in her state. When she got there, the bank wouldn’t let her make the deposit because they thought it sounded suspicious. So she wasted all that time, money, gas, and a hotel room….but she still had money in her pocket for the moment! Thank goodness for these banks asking questions!
The common denominator – loneliness. All single women in their 70/80s just looking for connection. It’s so important for seniors especially to get plugged into a community – senior centers, church groups, civic groups, etc!
Please don't let your grandmother, mother, neighbor fall for this. Talk to them. Send them here to read the stories and listen to my podcast. It is so important to stop this.
It will take ALL of us to take a stand!!!
