Phone Scams

I have had a few fake tech support calls myself, but what really worries me is the number of calls "un-technical" people have told me about this and the lack of awareness

I agree with you. As much as we'd like everybody to be cautious and avoid being scammed, there are still a few people out there who are not updated enough to be able to recognize a scam right away. This is why the government encourages everybody to always read the news and share any information about scams so everybody else is warned.

This is why whenever I get suspicious calls, I report the phone number to www.callercenter.com right away. I even got this call from "James" who told me that Microsoft has received an alert that I got virus on my computer and he called to help. I knew it was a scam right away. I called the bluff and hung up.

I knew because I got a Mac, not a Windows computer.
