So I’m watchin’ a program last night on Discovery Channel about Scams. They had a segment about criminals who rip people off over the phone and some guy said that the perps are the "same as bank robbers. I don’t see it that way. Yes, I do think it should be against the law to call people up and lie to them to get money. They are not the same as bank robbers, however. No one is threatening the lives of the people who will happily part with their life savings after 5 minutes on the phone.
How stupid does someone have to be to send a large sum of money to a stranger? Geez. I say misdemeanor at best.
