Brother in law got scammed on my father in laws computer. Wife was her dad's legal guardian. She told her brother to pound sand, stating that all financials had to go through her. Not quite sure how BIL got involved, but he knew then that dad was not responsible.

I will occasionally play with scammers. My favorite are the "your social number has been compromised and an arrest warrant has been issued". I've gone as long as 5 minutes playing that one.

My favorite early on - Answer, listen a few seconds, YELL, wait, I'm interested be right back, someone at the door..... Then put the phone down and go about my business. Never come back. Let them waste their time, not mine.

With Robot calls, it no longer makes any sense, if it ever did. I don't bother to answer unrecognized calls anymore.
