Here's a scam that I can see myself falling for some day. A woman named Shannon Fraser was out walking her dog when a young boy, who she thinks was about 12 years old, asked to use her phone because he was lost. She allowed him to use her phone, but while he was on the phone he sent almost four thousand dollars from her Venmo account. I don't ever have that much money in my Venmo account, but would definitely give my phone to a young kid in need. This is a good reminder for the future. Don't trust anyone you don't know. In this case, it would be better to make the call yourself to help the child and not simply hand them your phone.
