Three people in southern Florida have pled guilty to scamming elderly folks out of their money for (get this) toilet paper. Oh, they scammed them into buying other crap too, but it was the reference to toilet paper that caught my attention. Read about it here.

Three have pled guilty, but there are three others awaiting trial. The allegedly got over a million dollars from their victims by claiming an association with the EPA, the FDA, and the Dept. of Agriculture. Damn, but you’ve got to be absolutely heartless to take advantage of gram and gramps like that. I mean, there are people everywhere that will take what they want rather than earn it, but when they target the vulnerable and weak. Hmm, that just seems particularly shitty to me. (Sorry, couldn’t help the puns.)
