Phone Scam

Post by Stephen Hart » Tue Aug 27, 2013 2:23 pm

Be sure not to fall for this scam:

I just got a call on my iPhone. A robot voice told me I'd been selected for a $495 rebate on my Verizon account. I should just go to [bogus phishing site that sounds a bit and looks a bit like Verizon's] and log in. The point is to gather Verizon logins.

AT&T has been attacked by an almost identical scam, and there are probably others.

Bottom line: TANSTAAFL
