All scams are horrible but this type is particularly galling because it's usually older people that fall for it. Disgusting

Are you suggesting that I am wrinkly Ten out of ten you are correct

You are correct it appears older people are being targeted but watching a programme this morning an increasing number of what I will call a more mature generation are increasingly falling for scams that are centered around suspects financial ivestments.

Well, I wouldnt want the new found love of my life travelling cattle class.

On a serious note, that type of love scam is despicable, often preying on vulnerable widows and the like.

I think Sky insurance is a con in itself. If it breaks, come and fix it. If you decide not to, I'll terminate my contract with you. Your call.

Hasn't failed so far.
