My 84 year old MIL nearly 'bought' a new car yesterday however as my wife had hidden her bank cards to prevent such an event from happening she couldn't go ahead with the ''purchase of a lifetime''.
Seems she got a call from a gentleman in Buenos Aires offering her a new car in return for a one off payment of 5000 pesos. From then on she only had to make regular payments of an unknown amount which would give her the chance of having the new car within weeks . Sad thing is despite her once being a well respected notary she still thinks the offer was too good to turn down.
I told the missus to see if the phone company can block such cold calls.
