We’ve all had calls from the “IRS” telling us to pay or go to jail. Recently the “Social Security Administration” has been cold calling telling us the same kind of story.
Microsoft Security calls and wants into our computers.
The most common scam is the “Free Vacation”. Caller tells people they have won a free, all expense paid vacation. They only need to pay a fee for handling the paper work or verify credit card information.
Americans lost $9 billion to this nonsense in 2018. Unbelievable!
It’s unbelievable that anyone could be this stupid, but 24.9 million Americans lose an average of $349 each to these scams every year.
I personally don’t feel sorry for them. People who are that stupid will always find a way to give their money away.
