A NASTY SCAM

We had a nasty scam phone call yesterday. Lynettea has just rung the police about it and they told her these people were ringing many others and trying to frighten them into giving money to the fraudsters.
The man rang and said he was from the taxation office and they had found that Lynettea had defrauded the tax department. When he said that, Lynettea didn't reply. She knew she hadn't defrauded anybody. Then the man said he wanted her dealt with and put behind bars. Lynettea kept silent.
So then he said, 'Constable Mark, go around to' .. and then he started to give our address, at which point Lynettea hung up the phone.
The police told Lynettea that these people are making many of these  phone calls and demanding money.
'If you get one of these calls, just hang up and don't give them any money,' the policeman told Lynettea.
I feel relieved as I thought they might take me away, if Lynettea refused to go. I would be easier to pick up, because I am smaller.
Lynettea: 'Don't worry, Sasha. No-one is coming to get you.'

We kitties are lucky, we don't pay taxes at all, so those scammers have nothing to bait us with!

That is just terrible, Sasha! Some humans are nasty and evil. Imagine, trying to defraud others like that. :(
