In a heartwarming and amusing twist, 92-year-old Donna Saltzman is turning the tables on phone scammers. Videos posted by her granddaughter, Cheyenne, have gone viral on TikTok, showcasing Donna’s quick wit and acting prowess as she navigates scam calls with remarkable finesse.

The Scam: A Fake Emergency

In one video, a scammer tells Donna that her grandson is under arrest for causing a car crash. The emotional manipulation begins, as Donna feigns tears and worry on the phone.

“Oh my, oh my. This grandma is in tears. Oh! (woman crying),” she says, playing the part perfectly.

The scammer insists that Donna must pay up to prevent her grandson from going to jail. As the fake story unfolds, Donna’s performance continues to convince the scammer that she is genuinely distressed.

Turning the Tables

However, these tears are nothing but crocodile tears. Donna expertly keeps the scammer on the phone, prolonging the conversation until he becomes frustrated and hangs up.

“Can you give it cheaper to me?” she asks.

“No,” the scammer replies.

“Oh, well, I’m sorry you wasted all this time. You are wasting my time,” she responds, making it clear that she’s in control.

Keeping Scammers at Bay

In another video, Donna cleverly tells a scammer she can’t buy his fake life insurance policy because she believes the end of times is near.

“I think I’m going to get raptured, you know? So I don’t need all that stuff. Are you ready? Are you ready to go?” she asks, leaving the scammer speechless.

TikTok Sensation

Cheyenne, Donna’s granddaughter, has posted these videos on TikTok, where they’ve garnered over three million views. The humorous and savvy interactions have captivated audiences, showcasing Donna’s sharp mind and acting skills.

“I spoke to Grandma Donna Saltzman and granddaughter Cheyenne, who posted the videos. She came back and said, ‘You got three million people. It’s on TikTok.’ I don’t even know what TikTok is, to tell you the truth,” Donna laughs.

The Bigger Picture

According to the FBI, seniors lose more than $3 billion each year to financial scams. Donna’s videos serve as a reminder of the importance of awareness and caution when dealing with suspicious phone calls. Her quick thinking and humor not only entertain but also educate others about the dangers of scam calls.

Donna Saltzman proves that age is just a number, and with her sharp mind and Oscar-worthy performances, she continues to outsmart those who try to take advantage of her.
