    A list of popular scams that you can avoid.

    Post by papa_umau on Thu 29 Mar 2018, 11:49 am

    Scams to avoid in the UK.

    Weve, ( Tech advisors ), rounded up some of the biggest scams in the UK at the moment. Here's how to avoid being conned by cold callers, fake software and tickets, ransomware and plenty more.

    Scams are a huge issue in the UK, especially now that you can be conned online and also by ransomware.

    So if you get a phone call from "Microsoft" or an email offering millions if you just hand over your bank details, you should be suspicious.

    Here, weve listed some of the most frequently used scams in the UK along with advice on how to avoid them. Sometimes it's simply the knowledge of the scam that will put you in a strong position to avoid getting ripped off, but as you'll see, you might benefit from our expert advice too.

    Read about these scams from Tech Advisor HERE




    I know I gave a list of possible scams to avoid recently, but I believe that the list from Tech Advisor is more expert-based.

    Please read the link supplied and get yourself informed.

    Yes, you have given us a list like that before.

    Maybe this one is more precise.

    Have to have a study at the site.

    Yes, well spotted Zathrus; I have published such a list before, but as you also rightly say, maybe this list is "better based on fact".

    Give it a read folks and then make your own minds up.
