    How do they make your spouses (or whomever's) picture show up when the number has a 1 in front of it??

    Maybe Audi is right, but it's amazing. You're definitely going to answer and when the other person takling isn't who you expect, that shock element immediately catches you way off guard and the manipulation escalates from there.

    Because speed limits, like fears, are often just illusions.

    The scam ive heard is similar, but different. Someone knocks on your door in a security uniform or something. They say your spouses name, and that they've had a bad accident and are in the hospital. You naturally drop everything and go straight to the hospital, then they rob your house while you're gone.

    I think the idea is that you're at work, and she is of course in the kitchen where she should be. So she is the one that answers the door.
