So this time, here is a list of posts about fraud. Fraud done to us, to parents. Fraud by people you thought you knew. It’s everywhere. What are they thinking when they steal a few thousand dollars from people who are barely scraping by? Do they care? Do they feel a twinge of bad karma?
I don’t think. That’s the conclusion I’ve reached:
There’s a lot more. Scams by banks and credit cards. Scams by politicians, bosses, and co-workers. Everyone seems to be trying to get “what they deserve” out of the system because they are all sure that the rest of us can afford to give them our money … however little we happen to have. Elder scam, medical scams, surgical scams. Scams that land people homeless and without a penny to live on.
That’s the world we are living in … and with the way things are going, it’s just going to get worse.
