My phone calls have dropped considerably! I delete unsolicited texts. If I get an unsolicited phone call I tell the person to 'please remove my details from the database as I do not take unsolicited calls'. That gets rid of them! Anything to keep the vulnerable all of us safe is a worthwhile activity, having watched a 96 year old fend off scammers I personally know how credible they can be.
I have recently been hit by one of these scams. My computer broke down over the weekend so I used an online company to fix it. I checked a few and chose one that sounded reputable. I had to pay to have it fixed about the same as the local person who was not open at the time. They went through strict script including that they would never offer to refund the money. I got emails again warning of this. I got a phone call requesting feedback, and a couple of follow up calls.
Then I got a call saying they needed to update my programs and needed to access the computer again. The number was similar to the one I originally called and I felt confident they were the right company. Strange things started happening on my screen including setting up an AOL email, supposedly to divert spam mail into. I was getting worried then the mention of refunding the money. Because I had Windows 8.
Open your online banking. They then started looking at all my accounts. I got my husband to call the bank and eventually confirmed they could not get into my account, so I hung up. I got a confirmation message the money would be refunded in 2 working days. Still waiting. They a much more abusive message. Now you have no computer, we have locked it and you cannot get into it.
I have not called back, I am not going to let them hold me to ransom to have my computer opened. The original company are trying to help me get it open. If not I will get a new computer. They will not get any money. All I want are my photo's which they have deleted from my external hard drive, and they were on my computer in lightroom, thousands of them.
All my travels. I learnt the hard way. Any ideas of who I can get to help me would be greatly appreciated. I have recently had a spoof email supposedly from Microsoft saying that I had a fault on my computer which would cause a crash soon. They said they could fix it if I gave them access to my computer which being worried I did. After searching my computer they said that I could get an immediate fix by paying directly a huge sum to them. When I said I could'nt afford it they dropped the fee twice. I was suspicious so told them I was cutting the connection.
I have been worried since in case they had picked up any info from my PC. Can this happen? I have had no trouble that I can see. Now I would not allow this situation again but I was innocent and not suspecting. Take a lesson from me an elderly lady of 78 yrs. My husband and I have caller id , we also have had a few scam callers.
We now check numbers very carefully and put the numbers in our iphones to check them. We have switched off our message taking service because it answers the phone.
I feel very sorry for people who do answer every phone call they get. A lot of older people are at risk most do not have caller id on their phones. They do not understand scam callers. I do not know what can be done. I do not under stand why I can not see my name or email when I try to enter them. Get Caller Display and if you don't recognize the number don't answer if you don't want to.
Scammers will not normally leave a message but genuine firms will and when you phone them back, you will be able to confirm they are genuine. If I don't recognize the number I simply don't answer, they have the option to leave a voice message if they choose not to then it can't be that important. I also will not answer any with held numbers either. I never answer my phone unless I have had the ring codes from my family , any other calls go on to answer phone.
Good advice. Always be alert, because there are evil people who only want to deceive, and take advantage of you. I had a call from someone wanting to talk to me about my talktalk account. I asked him: 'Do you know that God is watching everything you do and one day you will have to account for all the wrong you have done? There are heavy fines and criminal prosecution for firms that ignore these laws.
Life in Germany is more peaceful as a result - you don't get the phone ringing several times a day with these nuisance calls. I like to take these calls and give totally rubbish information i. Age etc you get the idea but they dont get it till 5 mins later when money is mentioned i say all information was made up and i hope that scum like them have missed so many calls. But keep a whistle by phone if they get aggressive i warn them they will get hurt first.
My mother in law was robbed one year by people pretending to be the water company. During the robbery they took names of people known to the old lady and a year later called her telling her that they were going to make a delivery instigated by me, using my name. Luckily, my sister-in-law checked with me and it was identified as another cruel scam for a robbery.
It's true I was victim of scam. Later come to know I was trap in scam. I lost all money. Unless I personally know the number of the person calling, I let the phone call go to message I determine from that point what is real and who I want to talk to One way of preventing these scam calls and other unwanted calls is to get a phone that blocks calls from callers who hide their number, or screens out numbers that are not in your list 'approved' callers.
In the case of the later the phone will intercept the call and prompt the caller to state their name, the phone then rings and says????? Since getting one of these phones the number of unwanted calls has gone down from several a day to none. If you don't recognise the number on your phone display don't answer it. The phone preferencial service is only of use if the company respects your privacy; these scammers program in a batch of numbers whether they are ex-directory or not, they target you if you answer. If you suspect it's a scam just say you're the cleaner, you know nothing I have been very lucky so far that I haven't fallen victim to these individuals.
I have had one recent call claiming to be from Microsoft who warned me that my computer had been hacked.
When I challenged them to tell me the problem they hung up on me. I suppose they had expected me to become upset and for me to ask them how I could resolve the problem. I am not ready yet to get sucked in by these scum bags and will do all I can to ensure my family stay safe and don't fall for these tricks!! A couple of points regarding these calls. I agree with another poster that your pale grey font is hard to read, although the text is a good size and clear.
We know telephone scams are as prolific and serious as you say in your first paragraph. Surely organisations should be putting a lot of pressure on the Government to do something about them. That would be great. All sound advice but you make no mention of the fact that even ex-directory numbers like mine get plagued by calls from random diallers There is no mechanism in place to stop those calls.
I have a simple yet very effective technique for dealing with scammers and they usually hang up in 5 seconds flat.
I have 5 differnet language telephone answers and I change to the next one for every call I get. Sometimes I tell them the person they are looking for is not at home. Like I said, simple but effective. When this has happened to me I call my bank or whoever using the opposite phone off the one they called on, ie if they call on my moby I use the landline to call back. I would also ask them to collect the compromised card but call the police, from my other phone, to attend and collect the culprit.
I recently moved house and changed phone broadband ant TV to BT. I got a call from someone in India purporting to be from Open Reach. Feasable as I had just moved. The lady was almost incomprehensible so she tried to switch me to an "advisor" from Microsoft working with BT. At this stage I began to question the caller saying I thought it was a scam.
He became very angry and hung up. I then rang BT who confirmed it was a scam. So please be aware. The advice is good however to avoid receiving calls register with the telephone preference service, this will not stop all calls but should reduce the number received.

You think your phone is broken, friends tell you they phoned my number and spoke with someone else ,this creates a confusion with the phone company in my case BT this took hours on the phone to sort out as they said there was no fault ,but never said my number had been diverted,meantime the crook is withdrawn money from your bank account to this day I don't know how this was achieved.
Fraud department at BT ,my bank and the police Fraud squad couldn't explain as it would expose the loophole in the system thankfully the bank made no quibbles and paid the money back into my account. So be careful if suddenly your phones stop working. I have changed my landline number with all these scam calls and I won't be giving anyone my number other than family members Heard so much lately about this so I am very aware!!!
There is so much publicity about these scams now, I can't believe anyone would get caught out any more. Why do perfectly intelligent people go with complete strangers to their bank, draw money out and hand it over? If anyone gets a scam call, just put the 'phone down and if concerned about their account, go into a branch and speak to someone.
It's not rocket s ience! I received many scam calls , I did not give any details, I told scammer off, Blew a whistle, then switch on answering machine, they don,t like leave a message, I am in neighbourhood watch where I live, we meet up every three month and discuss the on going scams just use common sense.

I am the manager of a Citizens Advice Bureau and we have had people in our community contacting us to say they received an out of the blue call from the CAB about their debt. This is very worrying as the fraudsters are using the good name of the CAB to try to win trust. We are putting an article into our local paper to warn people that we NEVER cold call people and that we have reported the fraudsters number to the police who are investigating.
I am told that info is obtained via Census etc, when clearly this is not so. When I receive cold calls I just talk in French and that always works! They give up almost immediately. Why not call back on a different phone that they called on. That way it doesn't matter if they haven't hung up. Given the ability of the government to monitor calls why not put that to use on this type of crime in addition to other Criminal activity.
