Man if that doesn't send up red flag's.
Thank God that my inlaws, in their 80's, don't use computers. It took years to make them realize that if they check their checking balance with their ATM card, it wasn't accurate especially if they just mailed out checks to pay bills. They spent about 2 years, repeatedly paying overdraft fees and not understanding why. If they had a computer, I am sure they would learn more about scams, but they just might see one and fall for it.
My son has a sister that is 4 years younger than he is. He used to look up and say, "Someone wrote Gullible on the ceiling." That little girl ALWAYS looked up. He also discovered that if you take apart one of those disposable cameras, you can taze someone with it. He would always tell her he wouldn't shock her and she would always hold her arm out and he would zap her.
My wife has a friend who is 90 and trying to keep her straight with the junk mail and especially with this PCH (publishers clearing house, a legal scam in my opinion) stuff is just an never ending task. I would hate to see what kind of trouble she would get into on a computer.
