Holy moly I received a scam call they were acting like they were from social security. This was way before social security sent out a warning. They had me so freaked out that I had been a victim of identity theft I changed all my banking accounts & credit cards. Talk about anxiety overload. When I told my husband he freaked in reverse, was totally pissed at me. I started crying asking him how was I supposed to know it was a scam when they were giving me all my info not asking me for it. I called SSI and she assured me it was a scam but I was to far gone to be placated & was telling my husband I was just trying to protect what money we had & direct deposits……I can still feel how panicked I was…..sigh
Sorry if this appears twice.
Great prompt idea

“This seems like a deal too good to be true, Lydia. Are you sure they said you won that much money?” Keri asked the woman standing by the sink.
“Yes, they said I had won the money and just needed to call the number they gave me.” Lydia poured herself a second cup of coffee and went to sit down at the table with Keri.
“I don’t know it just sounds sketchy. I have won very small amounts from Publiser’s Clearing House before and they always sent me a letter confirming it. I don’t think for that big of a win that they would call. They should be at your front door with flowers and balloons. I just don’t trust this.”
“Fine honey, I won’t call the number.”
“Thanks Mom, I’d feel better if you didn’t.”
