Beware the Christmas Scammers..!

Post by TANGODANCER » Thu Nov 28, 2019 1:06 pm

The telephone scammers are out hunting for victims. Had two calls in the last two days, one from a supposed internet provider, and the other warning me my Amazon account is in danger (pity for them I don't have such) Might be an idea to warn any elder members of you families with a phone to be wary. These confidence tricksters are relentless.

Watched a program earlier about fake goods. There's hardly a product around now that someone won't make a shite copy of.

Had some bint in Israel try and buy a chainsaw with my PayPal account this morning.

Thankfully PayPal were on the ball.

Aye, your local burglar can live half-a-world away and rob you without getting out of bed. The wonderful world of technology hey? :wink:

Chuffed for you that the people at PayPal realised that the transaction wasn't Kosher, mate. ;)
