Spotting the scams
By Donna J. Jodhan

I believe that if we put our heads together and share the relevant
information it would certainly for us to be able to push back on those scams
and their scammer creators. We must not give up; instead, we need to be
able to spot them, ignore them, and immobilize them!

Remember now: They attack by phone and by email and even dare to come to
your door despite the Covid restrictions. So please allow me to share some
of my tips with you.

For the phone:
Ignore any automated call.
Ignore those calls asking for banking details.
Ignore those calls that tell you that your credit card has been disabled.
Ignore any call that when you answer your phone it takes a few seconds for
the call to connect.
Ignore all overseas calls that are not familiar to you.

For emails:
Delete those emails that are written in poor English.
Delete emails with erroneous names of senders; a bunch of letters and
numbers making up the sender’s name.
Delete emails that tell you that your email address has been frozen except
if it is from your provider and even at best to call your provider.
Delete emails asking you to sign in and re-establish connection with your
banking institution.
Delete emails that ask for your assistance in any way.
Delete emails with attachments from unknown senders.

Remember now! Scammers are also not afraid to attack you via your cell
phone.
Do not respond to any unknown texts or messages.

Finally, more sophisticated scammers are getting smart at using the names of
your friends to try and encourage to fall for their scams; by phone, by
email, and even by your i device.

Just my two cents for today.
