Hi Guys,the latest mobile phone scam is they claim to be from your Pay Pal account by sending you a text message.

My Mrs B.had one today. We were pre-warned these were coming our way two days ago.

If you receive a text message, Do not click onto it,just delete it.

Pay Pal do not send text messages to mobile phones.

They are Fishing sites all ready to steal your cash!

Stay safe. BB

This is a very sophisticated and successful entry way into your PAY PAL Account.
Click on that e-mail will give them instant access to your Main Bank Account.

Having on line friends here is why the WARNING! Keep Safe... Stay Well and Help Others if u can. BB

1471 Land Line Phone Scams.

The phone rings,one picks it up a Bott voice messages a threat to cut your Internet down that day. The voice will ask the question 'Press 1 to avoid this happening?'
Most put the phone down,then ring 1471 to trace the call.
Never do this,they, are still on your phone,and because you have pressed the 1 number this directs a Phishing Phone Scam into progress.

They can lock down Phones and PC's if their further directions are followed. Money is diverted from your bank account to unlock those things by the unfortunate YOU. Only to have them gain access to personal bank details and empty accounts.

£20,000 Pension fund stolen from an elderly man who foolishly followed all their instructions. Zip it's Gone!

OK, this is the Advice , when receiving this type of call. Put the phone down ,pick it up again.Click any numbers you wish ,but not starting with 1,or including 1. This clears the Bott from the phone.

Stay Safe. BB

Fake phone calls from E Bay stating that someone has bought a certain something using your PayPal Account. A figure given in Dollars is usually mentioned. ( We just had one.)
If you happen to receive a call from these un-traceable Bots! ' Do not panic! '

Ebay purchases can be checked out quickly using ones finger tips!
You might not even have an EBay or PayPal Account.
These are fishing calls so say nothing at all.

The computer automated voice is a dead give away.
However if directions are followed by pressing certain buttons it can lead them directly to your banking accounts. Many are falling fowl of these scammers! Mostly the older ones who might well be in lockdown and totally alone.

i care so i put the word out and it is simple as that.
Withstand what you must,
help others if you can,
but do stay safe,Stay well. BB

:coffee: Every Little Warning Helps,So Here Goes Another.

0011,Phone Number is a fake telephone number which is going out to Mobiles and Landlines in the UK and elsewhere! ____So Text Messages Too!
All 0011,numbers are Fake so won't work for phone number verification.
'Hard to track the Blighters!'
If you have been contacted by 0011,you ought to be extremely cautious about answering their calls. The caller ID has certainly been spoofed up with an officially reserved number, either as part of an elaborate prank or worse yet,a malicious scam! Be vigilant and don't let fraudsters con you out of your money.
Don't accept any calls or text messages from 0011! :thumbup: Stay safe,stay well and keep out the dirty fingers from getting your cash! BB

The Link to You Tube above is of a Police Officer being threatened with arrest for $10.000.000 Drug Dealing and other offences. The Scammers are sure directed down the yellow brick road.

In another video on these Scammers...
operating from Canada, their computer hubs are actually on mass in India home of the Scammers Paradise. Will the N W Mounties get them? We will see i guess.BB
