Then get one of those phone systems that only rings when the caller punches in the right code. No code and he wont even hear it ring. Remove the answering machine too.
Then get a PO box and have all his mail forwarded to it.
Beyond that and you'll need to get power of atty over his finances and can set up a max ammt he can debit the acct before it requires your signature.
phone number has been changed 4 times since LAST thanksgiving
never heard of this phone, does it have a brand name?
i have talked to the post master, my grandfather can't remember a change was made because of scams so he freely changes it back himself
