Scammers Now Pretending To Be Deaf

What kind of lowlife scumbag would pretend to be deaf to scam someone? This is an age old "advance fee" scam with a new twist.

He recently received three odd phone calls from prospective customersآ—deaf people using a relay serviceآ—wanting to place a catering order for a party of about 100 people using a credit card. Oh, and even though the party is three weeks out, could his business send $956 to the party planner who will be picking up the food, even though the party is a few weeks out?
