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.
