The scam I keep getting is a fake statement of billing from this, that, or the other thing. "Your credit card has been charged $399.99 for blah, blah."

Somewhere in the scam it gives you a phone number to call "if you have any questions."

Yeah, riiiiiiight!

Lately I've been getting recorded messages from the 'tax office' ... the give away was when they claimed they were from the "Australia Tax Office' .... :smirk:smirk

I am now getting messages about a missed phone call. Funny thing is—no record of any missed call in the “recents” list. This one really could catch you out—make sure to check if there is indeed a call you missed!

I have had three or four messages about a delivery coming my way with a nice link I should click. Yeah, right!
I just got a call a few minutes ago about some amazon parcel ... apparently they have to deduct .99c from my bank account in order for me to receive it :jumping goofy:jumping goofy

Now the scam test says it is from DHL but the link they would like me to click on doesn’t look like the DHL website! (I am expecting a parcel but not this week!)

Stay alert! Don’t blindly click on links!
