Oh yeah. Every time I read something like this, I get really, really frustrated and furious over the fact that there are no known neighborhood volunteers going door to door informing senior citizens against things like this and supporting them as people they can contact if they suspect something wrong.
This sort of thing is a bit too large for the D.A.'s Office alone.
I first heard of something like this happening in Cheektowaga, New York when Gov.Cuomo was the State Attorney General. He took a personal interest in it. In that case the hit was for $82,000.00! The victim was 88 years old Whoa!
You know this isn't going to stop on its own. This is on the neighborhood level. That's the only, most reliable way to do it.
