My mum used to get some of those every day. I ended up having to set her up with a new email address.

Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

Wife just had an automated call . . . from 07675431026 . . telling her that her National Insurance number has been compromised

Is there no end to this madness?

Due to the nature of her work, sometimes it's a little difficult not to answer calls from an unknown number, thankfully she's got her head screwed on though.

Trouble is, they are now so clever at doing it that even some experts on scamming have been caught out.

I worry most for vulnerable people who may be more easily pulled into it

Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

Sadly there will always be people caught out by scammers.

The vulnerable are definitely in need of better protection (somehow), but there are also those caught out by their stupidity (and greed) and fail to see the thorns on the rose offered.

And you are in Whitchurch , surprised you get anything . Local web pages report no end of problems with all virgin media services since it's been upgraded l have lost count of the number of outrages l have had since it was done . Last I called the bot even noted that I had called a number of times really finding virgin is getting worse by the day. What do they really think they have done. Service was rock solid before they " fixed" it
