No rest for the elderly, apparently. People continue to find new ways to take advantage of our nation’s greatest, from all sorts of schemes, the elderly continue to be an easy target for sketchy folks out there. Even though this hack doesn’t impact the elderly directly – so a low stamp on the questionable scale – it can still get you into some trouble if you’re not careful.
I think a lot of people have pulled off the ”my grandma is dead” card in various situations. This is definitely nothing new, but we can say it’s a new creative spin on the classic. You’re technically not hurting anyone or taking advantage of some elderly person – it’s some kind of a white lie. Just make sure they never find out your grandma is alive, or it can get pretty awkward.
