They all meet up the next week for coffee
Milt: I just got a threatening phone call last night!
Seth: One of your many ex-girlfriends, no doubt.
Milt: I wish. No, it was a guy who claimed my brother had stolen his car. He knew my name, everything about me. He said he'd kill me if I don't wire him one hundred thousand dollars by midnight, tonight! I'm scared, man! He sounded like a gangster.
Seth: Whoa there, calm down. This is probably just another scam, don't you think?

Seth: I thought that was just because he was getting old.
Ash: If only that were true. Someone claiming to be a social worker went to his village. She ate with him, talked with him, helped him buy groceries, acted like she was his friend...
Seth: ...I think I can guess where this is headed.
Ash: My grandpa's eyes are bad, you know? He has trouble seeing the ATM screen. Soon, that special friend started helping him with his finances. Two days later, his life savings vanished, along with his so-called friend.
