Drug dealers target seniors traveling abroad

Drug dealers target seniors
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency [ICE] warns seniors traveling abroad to beware of schemers who might trick them into smuggling drugs into the U.S., reports the Association of Mature American Seniors.
The traffickers figure that customs officers are less likely to search baggage belonging to elderly travelers.  ICE says that the bad guys entice them via social media and fraudulent telemarketers with offers of free travel and other perks.
Special investigators said they saved one 97 year old man from falling victim to the scam before he took off on what he thought would be a free trip abroad.
Finders’ keepers
The person who found Mr. Flaherty’s wallet certainly displayed a “cheeky” sense of humor when he returned the Brooklyn man’s credit cards and drivers’ license, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.
NBC News reports the individual who found the wallet enclosed a note that read: “I found your wallet, and your driver’s license had your address so here’s your credit cards and other important stuff.  I kept the cash because I needed weed, the MetroCard because, well, the fare’s $2.75 now, and the wallet ’cause it’s kinda cool.  Enjoy the rest of your day.  Toodles, Anonymous.”
Of mice and men
Authorities in Brussels have had to delay plans to make much-needed repairs to the city’s crumbling roadways after mice apparently ate the blueprints, says the Association of Mature American Citizens.
