It seems there is a scam popping up again where you get a call saying they are fro windows help desk, the caller knows your postcode address and name and tries to get you to allow access to your computer remotely to so called fix problems, as you can guess it’s a scam, hang up.

Thanks for that warning too Caz, it never stops, it’s almost to the point you don’t dare answer the phone or open an email.

I got an email this morning saying that funds had been transferred in my Nedbank account “click here” for details!!!! Ja right!!!!! And trust me someone is going to fall for it - what surprises me don’t people realise that the bank will never send an email in this regard ever (head-shake).

Thanks LC…

It’s endless and I usually just laugh thinking “ARE YOU KIDDING ME”... But it’s true, there may be that one vulnerable person out there that will bite…shaking my head here.

One of our radio announcers got one of these phone calls and he recorded it on his IPhone, he played it today on the radio. This guy is really funny and he basically had these 2 scammers speechless, the first guy couldn’t handle it so he put his so called supervisor on the phone. They want you to log onto a website which will wipe out your entire hard drive. The end result, they hung up , the scammers got scammed.LOL

Thanks a ton, Ms. LadyCaz.  There are so many “scams” going on and for sure you can’t be too careful.

We get a lot of online scammers from Nigeria and England. I just heard on the news yesterday that a bill is being introduced to end the phone solicitors, or at least try to keep it to a minimum. That would be a nice relief! Someone told me that when a solicitor called multiple times (hate that) that they told the solicitor to hold on a minute and set the phone down and never went back to it. lol
