From the Playbook of a Con

I opened Dad’s checkbook to buy some medical supplies. Hmmm, I thought, the balance is getting low. I scanned the previous entries and was shocked by what I saw—thousands of dollars in checks paid to his caregiver, far more than her salary. I could never have imagined that our family would be the victims of con artists. After all, we were well educated, worldly and wise. No matter! A con is smarter and wilier than you and me put together.
