Eighty-five-year-old Helen R. was “fed up” with receiving calls from scammers claiming to be tax collectors.
After receiving several calls from the same number, she took matters into her own hands. Helen phoned back one of the numbers and called them out for harassing her: “you are a fraud, go and drop dead.” She has since said that she is not a mean person, but was tired of dealing with people trying to take advantage of her and other seniors over the phone. The scammers claimed to be working for the Canada Revenue Agency.
