One way to avoid telephone scam

DEAR EDITOR:

It is very easy not to become the victim of a telephone scam when someone claims to be a grandson. Ask the caller what his number was on the football team. Don’t ask if he played football, but what his number was.

If they don’t hang up, they may try to guess. Thing is — the grandson never played football! This would work for a granddaughter also, using basketball or soccer.
