GRANDPARENTS BEWARE: The ‘Grandparent Scam’

I am hoping that many readers will read this and then send it out to their family and friends.

This morning I was drinking my coffee when the phone rang. The person said “Hi Grandma” but I did not recognize the voice. I asked “Who is this?” and the man said “Your oldest grandson.”

I discerned that this was not my grandson, but what he said to me next truly alarmed me.

“You have to promise me that you will not tell anyone about what happened” he said. I allowed him to tell me a story that did NOT ring true for my grandson. He said that all of his friends were drunk and he was chosen to drive, and that he hit a car with a pregnant woman in it.

He then asked if his attorney could call me. I said yes, still knowing that this sounded contrived and much like a scam.

We hung up and in a couple of minutes another man called. He said that he was from a Legal Defense firm and that he was going to represent my grandson.

Then he said that they needed $6000 which would be returned to me after the court date. I told him that the person who called me first did not sound anything like my grandson. He responded that it was probably because the air bag broke his nose and he had stitches in his face.

I told this man to call me back in 10 minutes. I could tell he did not like this, but he said he would call back.

I called my daughter and told her what happened. My grandson works at night and sleeps in the day and he was most likely fast asleep, but we still wanted confirmation of that.

My daughter finally called me back and said that he was fine and was sleeping.

I looked online and found numerous articles about the “Grandparent Scam.” I had never heard of it, but now I realize that it is a common scam.

I even called the non emergency number of our local police. My daughter asked me to do this and to give them the phone numbers the scammers used. The office said that this was such a common scam and did not want the numbers. That surprised me a bit.

Brethren, please alert your family and friends about this!

Iran’s General Salami (Again) Says ‘Decline and Collapse’ of Israel Is Imminent” I Say He is FULL of Bologna

They really have no idea who they are fighting. I am not referring to the IDF or Israel as a whole. I am speaking of the GREAT I AM Who is the Protector of Israel. They are HIS PEOPLE!

This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord.  In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.  

The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.  I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.  I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’ (Ezekiel 38:17-23)

Brethren, I believe that we are very close to this prophesied event.

From Breitbart.com

Major General Hossein Salami, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), on Tuesday again boasted the demise of Israel is fast approaching, adding it is “not a wish anymore, but a reality that will come true in the near future.”

He gave no precise timeline to back up the extravagant claim he has made manymanytimes before, but warned this time he really means it.

He spoke after meetings with the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad respectively.

The semi-official Iran outlet Tasnim reports Salami spoke with the Palestinian terrorist leaders who have visited Tehran following a “major, extraordinary and wonderful triumph” against “the Zionist enemy.”

“Considering the undeniable realities on the ground, we are confident that the decline and collapse of the Zionist regime is beyond a wish and is a reality that could happen in the near future,” Salami said.

Tuesday’s boast of the end of Israel is not the first time Salami has made the same prediction.

As Breitbart News reported, in May he said Israeli society is “breaking apart at the seams” as it faced the manly disposition of Iranian forces.

“The Zionist system is breaking apart, faltering, and crumbling from within. Over the past year and a half, they tried to project a powerful image of themselves, namely inflate themselves like a balloon,” a clearly excited Salami said.

“Israeli regime’s destruction may take only one operation.”

He also issued a warning to foreign adversaries.

“Our enemies are facing a decline in power, and with each passing day, the slope of this decline is accelerating,” Salami said, “but the enemy’s threats still remain.”

Previous to that declaration he warned the United States is “collapsing” and “Washington’s fake image of being a superpower” is being dissolved.

“By the grace of God, we are witnessing the rapid decline of our enemies, especially the United States,” Salami said during a military ceremony in Tehran, as reported by local MEHR news agency.

The general then turned his sights on the U.S.’s security presence in the Middle East, saying it has been “weakened…. Any foreign extra-regional force in the region is viewed as a foreign body here and has to leave the region sooner or later.”

He also issued a warning to foreign adversaries.

“Our enemies are facing a decline in power, and with each passing day, the slope of this decline is accelerating,” Salami said, “but the enemy’s threats still remain.”

Previous to that declaration he warned the United States is “collapsing” and “Washington’s fake image of being a superpower” is being dissolved.

“By the grace of God, we are witnessing the rapid decline of our enemies, especially the United States,” Salami said during a military ceremony in Tehran, as reported by local MEHR news agency. Source

Brethren, we know how this end times war will turn out. We only need to read God’s Word for Truth.

“I am the Lord, that is My name;
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images” (Isaiah 42:8).
