I think they should hire the elderly to scam people over the phone. No one can say no to a sweet grandma when she's trying to sell you life insurance!

The best way to get credit card scams to work is to disguise them as phone sex hotlines. "For a premium payment, you can enjoy our services" and whatnot.

Judging from how much time we spent outside geeking out about comic books, I'd say First Class is a pretty awesome movie.

@ThornsInOurSide: In my stint as a customer service representative, an elderly woman convinced me to completely wipe her bill by breaking down into tears and telling me she had recently found her husband dead on the floor. The elderly sure do know how to pull on the heart strings.

@BlackMageBrad: A fun game to play is, "Is it a Phone Sexline?" where you come up with filthy 7 letter phrases, then dial 1-800-***-**** and then see if it exists.

@J2383: It is. See it yet?

@Effigy_Power: Who doesn't enjoy a happy ending?

If only every scammer could have to go through him before they get to me... At least then I could enjoy the haunted sound of their voices...

And wow... I am surprised that you were able to wipe her bill clean, regardless of how good her story was :)

Yet another reason why I no longer carry a cell phone.

@Unka John: At this point, cell phones are almost necessities. The existence of phones have given people the excuse to flake out all the time because of the ease of changing plans on the fly. If I didn't have a cell phone, I wouldn't know that my friend was going to be 3 hours late meeting me at the bar.
