More Scams

Sincerely, who falls for these:

I' m Maureen Hinckley from Sterling Massachusetts.My foundation is donating $550,000 to you.Contact us for further details.

I don't even know a single Maureen. I seriously doubt her foundation is giving me money. I just don't get it!

And here's the one I almost fell for. I was in the middle of updating my info when I had second thoughts. I have Netflix and realized that my credit card was out-of-date. As I was updating it, I got a funny feeling, so I stopped. I decided that I would wait until I had time to go directly to the Netflix site and check it out. Besides, I hadn't been having any trouble watching Netflix.

I'm so glad I waited. The very next day, I got my receipt from Apple---through which Netflix is charged. Whew!! That was close!

  1. Most real accounts will address you by the name on your account - I know paypal only addresses their customers this way so the scammers call you "Dear Account Holder" or "Dear Customer". I have long made it a rule to go to the website through my own links and never through a link sent to me.


Thanks for commenting. If you would like a response from me, then please leave your email address.
