    It would be hysterical if a scammer sent an e-card claiming it's from my mom and dad who are both...dead. That would be a trick!

    I had spam telling me to check my paypal account. I deleted it. I never had paypal. Or if you don't do this or that your e-mail will disappear or be locked out. I delete those too. I don't use facebook or paypal and as long as I pay my bill my internet is safe. I used to get calls from people claiming their from Microsoft you have a virus on your desktop. I don't have a working desktop anyway and those people are from India you can't understand. Oh and if anyone gets a call demanding money for say breast cancer hang up. You donate to whom you contact first. Had one of those the other day and I kept saying don't know if I can or have no money purposely wasting their time and they hang up. Or if they don't immediately say anything I hang up.

    Sometimes they use real people's names on the catfish ones. I've gotten messages from my mamaw and great aunt. Only issue is, they don't message me randomly and if they do they text my phone or call me. Which is also never bcuz they tell my mom to let me know about stuff. So when I got messages from them I immediately shut them down and reported them

    The job one is tricky cuz they claim to have gotten ur info from a job site but never say which one.. Will say we saw ur resume n feel ur a good for the company.. Then ask u if u have Duo n will send u a link to call them. But once they allegedly hire u they start asking u to send all this personal stuff to them including ur credit card info to get started..
    Oh and the rent this house scam

    Ways to troll scammers:
    1. Tell them details that lead to a credit card with no money at all in them. Make sure you don’t use that credit card after that.
    2. Give them any kind of password that is impossible to input into an account. (Ex: “mY pAsSwOrD iS “948372704827294828947295920aahahahhheowjdbjfksjdbdjdj.dowoj” oK gIvE mE mY fReE sTuFfF!” when the maximum password length is 10)

    My friend, who is the same age as me (12) did a gift card scam, and the person who scammed her is spamming me through her Instagram account. I told her delete her account and change her email. I don't know if the people can or can't delete comments so she can't see them. What do I do in the meantime, because im worried they're going to figure out how to get onto her moms credit card through her email.(I know she's paid for stuff on her phone.) Please help me I know that this is happening and I don't want to let them do this, and make them go bankrupt. If you have something to say, please reply to this comment... Thanks for listening

    There is also an Email scam floating around that says if you don't click the link they provide in 5 days your Google account will be closed/deleted. It's been 6 months since I've gotten one my account is fine. They even sent one to my Yahoo account.😄

    My personal favorite is the FBI pop up claiming I've viewed child porn and have to pay a fine to unlock my computer and avoid charges. Because.... that's exactly what happens to people who view child porn, you pay a fine and everything is fine. It's not like its punishable by 15 -20 years in prison for your first offense or anything.

    Number 8 happened to me, a guy contacted me in fb and after 2 days he started sending me love messages, I though it was weird, so I looked his profile and I found something in one of his pics, I googled it and I found the real pic, it turned out to be a successful writer, married with kids, so I wrote back saying that he was a scammer and of course he blocked me, but before that I warned our mutual contacts on fb.

    A weird version of #2 is where instead of "a virus" it's "we're the FBI. We detected you were watching Child Porn. Pay us a fine or you won't be able to use the computer." It's mind-boggling that they even go to that effort. Just make a lock to pay, because who would fall for that? Yeah, the sites can be dodgy but not that dodgy (illegal streaming sites, not CP), so it would be weird to "hit" a guilty person, so you know your innocent, you know the FBI would just arrest you, so why bother with the pretense? Luckily, the one I got was weak, cntrl+alt+delete took care of it.

    Hmmm, the thing with emails that have a lot of mistakes does not always mean they are fake. I know a legit company who sends emails littered with spelling and grammar mistakes (mainly bad translation from the original English version). But they are actually real, official emails from a real official company...
