I answer phone. After what seems like an unusual delay for a normal call, someone with an adult male voice comes on the line.
"Grandpa, it's me."
Hmm. My eldest grandson is 7 years old.
It's not him. In any case all my grandkids call me "Granddad" not "Grandpa."
"Hello!" I say cautiously.
"It's me, your grandson."
"It's me. Your eldest grandson!"
"Really? What's your name?"
"Sorry. My eldest grandson isn't called Steve. You obviously have the wrong number."
I hang up.
Did I just dodge one of those "Your grandson is in jail and you need to send $5,000 to bail him out!" scams?
