No Such Thing
Clearly, there are people who fall for all kinds of computer scams — the scam business is as active as ever. I hope you are not among them.
Just a reminder, there is no such thing as:
- Your email account being suspended in 24 hours
- Your bank account being closed suddenly
- Your Windows license key expiring
- An unknown caller knowing if your computer is infected
- A surprise Amazon gift certificate
- A “Thank you” from Apple for your expensive iTunes purchase (with a note saying,
- “If you didn’t make this purchase, click here…”)
- A million dollars from a foreign country waiting for you in customs
If it seems unusual, it is probably a scam. Please delete/hang up/ignore and return to whatever you were doing.
