I hate criminals that take advantage of the elderly
My great aunt was also a victim of people who came into her house and stole from her. They asked to use the telephone or something and so she lets them in and while one was on the phone the other went into her bedroom and stole jewelry from her.
Today's world is
you seriously can't trust anyone.
Awful. Crooks seem to have lost any restraint they ever possessed these days, taking advantage of the elderly like that.
