The Phantom Girl Scout really was a con job attempted on my wife.
Laura got a call asking who had called her twice from a stolen cell phone. Apparently the “Girl Scout” was a total fake trying to get money out of unsuspecting people. The second call was to put more pressure on Laura, but when she refused to pick, up they decided to play with her mind.
And yes, they did talk about selling cookies, which was what gave the scam away.
