"Hello sir I am a ugandan prince and I want to give you $2.500,000 to transfer into my other account. I will give you $500,000 upfront if you help me. Thankyou"
How does / Has that scam ever worked ahahaha
There are so many scam sites out there anymore. It's annoying to spend hours of your time to earn money only to realize you won't ever get paid. It makes me wonder if they were set up to be scams, or if they just went downhill.
I fell for scams back in the days and no longer am gullible for it. After experiencing some, it made me "wise up" and to know what to look out for. Do not fall for anything that ask for your money unless it's a home based business.
Wonder why the scammers are crawling out the woodwork lately. I received two scam phone calls, one for a "Free cruise" and one for "loan approval" within an hour this morning. Usually it's months between scam calls.
There are lots of ways to discourage scam phone calls. I'm sure you can find a few online. My favorite is to ask for their Company ID and tell them I will call Microsoft and request speaking to the person with that ID. Once they know you're onto them, they usually give up. At least, they have for me.
I am so tired of getting these "Windows Technical Department" scam calls. They have called several times over the last 2 days at all hours. It sounds like they are calling from a bar. I give them a few choice words, recommend an activity that may be physically impossible and hang up. You'd think they would get the hint that I'm not falling for it.
I get soo many calls every single day from a business saying they are TD Bank. I called my bank and told them and gave them the number that keeps calling me and they said that the number is not associated with TD.. Be careful when answering your phone!
