Phone scams suck, some scammers are lazy and don’t even try very hard. I don’t even understand where some of them get their funding. Unless some people are so stupid they would believe anything. People need to start being less lazy and start research to learn. Stop complaining and start doing something about it.
This is a list on what you can do about phone scams and fraud.
- Don’t answer the phone if the caller ID is (Unknown, Private, out of area, or not in your contacts) .
- If the caller said they are from Microsoft (anyone related to Microsoft would not be calling you for support, it is a scam) hang up and please don’t give any personal information over the phone, also someone could be listening in on your call.
- Hang up if the caller starts telling you that you won something. Or if you ask them for information and you can’t even understand what they are saying. Also if they have an accent.
- Don’t give any personal information over the phone. Just don’t do it. Banks, Government, or any real business would not ask for any personal information over the phone. It is too risky and illegal, business know this. Except if you called for support ,but still be cautious.
Phone scams are like annoying cockroachs, they are dirty and ugly. Cockroachs like dirt, crumbs, and leftovers. Scammers are the same, they work dirty, they take you until you have nothing left, and they won’t leave you any crumbs.
We need to eradicate them at their source. Don’t give them resources or funding. Don’t pay them any attention. Ignore them until they run out of resources and have no choice but to find something else. Sometimes to make someone leave you have to ignore their calls or their plead for attention, block and report them.
