Beware of Fraud!

By Phyllis Naegeli
1     Jason put the phone down on the table and ran to the kitchen. "Mom, I need your credit card!"
 
2     Mom turned to look at Jason with surprise on her face. "Why do you need my credit card?"
 
3     "The man on the phone said that I need it to pay for the shipping for the video game I just won! It's the latest game from Revel. All I have to do is pay $5.95 shipping and handling."
 
4     Mom wiped her hands on a towel. "Is the man still on the phone?"
 
5     Jason looked puzzled. "Yes. Why?"
 
6     "I want to talk to him," said Mom. She headed out of the kitchen, walked into the den, and picked up the phone.
 
7     Jason came into the room as Mom picked up the phone. "Hello," she said.
 
8     The voice on the other end answered, "Hello, Mrs. Wright."
 
9     "How do you know my name?" she asked.
 
10     "Jason gave me his name and address so I can send him his new video game. It's the latest release. The retail value is $39.95. But, all he has to do is pay $5.95 for shipping and handling. If you'll just give me your credit card information, he'll be all set."
