“This is a particularly despicable crime, and it’s a massive and growing problem,” Barr said at a news conference. “It’s despicable because the people involved are vulnerable and because of their stage in life, they don’t have the opportunity frequently to recover. And so these losses are devastating to them.”

Barr said authorities “have to prosecute an all-out attack on this type of crime.”

Who wants to tell him that this is also Fox’s target audience and that they also get scammed?

The Justice Department said Thursday that it has charged more than 225 individuals over the past year in connection with fraud scams that victimize people age 60 and older.

How many of those 225 individuals have the surname “Trump?”

Gosh, this is really great, and what a great time to break this news. Now if the DOJ could take a look at churches that also scam people out of their money, they could start doing some real good.

Just how stupid do you have to be… oh. That stupid.
