Another “Scam of the Day!”

...here's another one!

…here’s another one!

We just got this email from a reader who lives in Toledo:

I just received a telephone call from a man with a very foreign accent, claiming to be calling from Publishers Clearing House. He told me that I had won a Million Dollars and a new Mercedes Benz car. All I had to do was send $325 by Western Union to a woman in Mississippi. I would then receive the money and car by 2pm this afternoon. I checked online for the two telephone numbers he gave me. The company shows up as YMax Communications Mobile out of Nassau, New York. There were complaints online for the exact same prize-winning offer. I telephoned my accountant and the police. It appears this is definitely a scam. Please advise your readers to be aware.

Thank you dear reader! You just did!!

And ANOTHER ONE just in…

We received a call yesterday here in Siletz from a “Windows Detective.” (Probably a computer scam). My son just hung up. The man had a heavy accent also. Area code 992. Found out it was from central Asia – Tajikistan!?

Of course, standard advice is when you hear the words:

* Congratulations!! You just won…
* Hi, I’m in jail in Mexico…
* You’re electric bill is overdue…
* We’re holding your son for…

…and on and on, you know you’ve got a snake on the line.

If you get a call like this and there’s a number on your screen, write it down, hang up, and immediately call police. After that call or email your friendly local news webpaper and tell them what happened. That way everyone in the community will know there’s a predator on the street prowling for victims.
