Have you ever been been a victim to a scam or con?
I received a Facebook message from a school friend today. She asked me if I'd seen the good news. She told me she'd seen my name on a list of winners and she'd won too, so had 130,000$ in her bank account. Sure enough my name was there. To apply for the prize, all they needed was name, address phone number and email address. My friend asked if I'd contacted their helpline to discuss the winning, so I did. But not believing it could possibly be true, I checked the website on Google and discovered news items from last October on reports of a 'mega millions' scam in Florida that looks very much like it is connected. What a shame!
Meanwhile I have sent a message to my friend via a different way to let her know her Facebook account must have been hacked.
Have you come across anything like this?
