Scams are some of the oldest things in the books. They go back to letters and phone calls and eventually evolved to email and even Facebook. Some are hilariously bad. One of my favorites is when someone calls claiming to be from Mircosoft to inform you that your computer isn’t working and you need to let them have access to fix it. The funny part is when you tell them you don’t own a computer or like if your my mother you string them along for 10 minutes or so before informing them you don’t own a computer that runs Windows but a Mac instead. You learn a lot of new and colorful language usually in another language.
My most recent experience was with my e-mail telling me my account on my Iphone X was in danger of being deactivated. Now the email itself was very well craft, the sender address “looked” correct the message it self was even spot on. There was of course only two major problems. I don’t have an Iphone X and my account is set to a completely different email. At the end of the day the best answer to any situation that might be a scam is to constantly asked questions, be aware, and never be afraid to call in back up.
