Harold, I thought I posted some stuff about your buddy Sam but I don't see it. I found his date of death and some family info from a 1940 census.

Harold, it was the "Grandpa bail me out of jail" scam that has been going around.

I just received this phone call and it is very concerning.

 

“Grandpa, Hi “

 

“Who is this?”

 

“it’s me your oldest grand son.”

 

“Who?”

 

“your oldest grandson”

 

“Which oldest, what’s your name?”

 

“Grandpa, it’s me, your oldest grandson”

 

“What is your name?”

 

“”it’s me Michael Goldstein, who else would I be?”

 

“Michael, go find yourself another grandfather.”

 

 

I hung up the phone.  The number on caller I.D. 770-258-9369

 

Non working number
