My Dad got rattled by a telephone call that was a scam, but he thought it was for real.
So he called me in a panic. This evening Dad  got a telephone call saying that someone saw his car go up to a bank and the person driving his car robbed the bank. Dad said he doesn't own a car. The caller then hung up.
But Dad was rattled, as Dad wanted me to find out who had bought his car.... well, his car was donated to a charity a couple of months ago and auctioned off probably for scrap as the car wasn't in good shape. Plus that has no baring on this, as who would know he used to own that car in the first place. I told Dad I still have his license plates, and the State knows the car was "sold" months ago. So don't worry.
Dad was still worried, and I don't blame him, if I got such a call I would be upset, too. Dad asked how did they get his telephone number. I asked Dad, did they call you by your name.... no... then this was a random call by a scammer. I bet if they had hooked Dad to believing this, then would ask for money to keep quiet.
I also finally got into my Dad's email, couldn't believe all the scams that came through. I can see how elders could get caught up in some of these things. Especially ones that pretend to be a bank or credit card.
