    N-Direct latest list of active scams to watch out for.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 04 Dec 2018, 12:04 pm

    Please find the newest government website to point out scams that we might not know about.

    Read this list of new scams from N-Direct HERE



    It seems that I keep on going on and on about scams in the pages of ROB, but I do this to ensure that we are informed about the latest scams on the go "out there".

    This is a quite new government website and I just found it out yesterday.

    That's definitely a "new" one Paps.

    Thanks very much for searching for these things for us.

    Yes, it is a "new" one, but I definitely think it is a cracker.

    These posts are not hard to read but most of them are good to know about.

    The rest is up to you.

    Thanks again Papa.

    It is good to see that the government are trying to do something to keep us informed.

    They tried this on me about a week ago, won't be putting up with any of it. I checked the number on Who Called Me, and reported the number as suspicious (a West Midlands Number with a Indian or Pakistani accent), then called BT who told me it was a scam.

    I treat all incoming numbers as Suspicious, unless I know the caller or have asked someone to call.

    So do I HG, and that is why I have a call blocker on my landline.

    HERE is the Google page that gives you the choices.

    The thing is that these call blockers, ( or sometimes called Guardians ), are great value for money as they are not expensive and they do a really great job.
