(Central Valley, CA)
My grandmother is 88 years old. She lives alone.
2 men showed up at her house at 8PM and bullied their way in to give her a "free demonstration".
2 hours later, my grandmother was tired and confused and finally ended up giving them a check and her old vacuum cleaner (which my parents had just spend a few hundred dollars buying her).
She told us that during the demonstration, one of the guys kept wandering around her house and she didn't know where he was. She was tired, confused, afraid and they bullied her into buying a $2500.00 machine.
Try that crap with a young person all day and call it "sales tactic", fine. But a little old lady who is obviously confused?
That is elder abuse.
