Those that prey on the young and elderly should be sent straight to jail for a long time.

I was scammed by a company called GMY. They said they were calling from Medicare, asked for my social security account no and bank account. After the call I checked their 800 number and discovered they were scammers. I immediately went to my bank and changed my checking account. This caused a lot of effort to notify my automatic payment companies (and social security dept) of this change. I called FBI and they suggested I call FTC. FTC rep I spoke to said there were other complaints against this company.
