LETTERS: Scam watch

It may be criminal, but it was sure funny. I received a phone call from credit card services today.

Which in itself was not so unusual and funny. However, the number and name calling me was myself. Now I’m a bit forgetful, but I’m sure I did not tape this message and phone myself. Please people do not fall for these scams.

Is there not some way the telephone companies can not put in safeguards so that people do not use our phone numbers for scam purposes. Surely in this day and age there must be some way.
