as before, (demented) Mother is plagued with these calls and I've had to
hide her cheque book and anything else with her account numbers on, to stop
her giving the details to these people. Registered with the TPS, etc etc.
If I arrange for her to have witheld-numbers blocked, this would help to
some extent, but would it prevent her relatives in Australia from phoning
I've thought about changing her number but then I've got to rely on her to
make a list of all the friends and relatives who phone her that we need to
inform of her new number, which isn't realistic.
What's the definitive answer? I can't be there every day, all day and
evening to "screen" the calls. I keep going to the bank and (Power Of
Attorney) cancelling her direct debits to charities, but within 48 hours
they've hassled her by phone again, and got her to reinstate them. I'd love
to kick these people's teeth out. It seems every time I pop in, she's on the
phone to one or other of these parasites.
