A quick alert to all our awesome readers. The mass calling of robocallers are starting. A new fake call is coming from a scammer system claiming to be from CreditFix and are standing by to help you now!

Also if you don’t answer be ready for the text messages the time will come immediately following the robocall. Ignore them as well. Verifying your phone number and info is real is just as important to the scammers as stealing from you.

DON’T BELIEVE IT! Just hang up and ignore the texts. Never say the word “yes”, and put the number on your block list.

We @xsimplr_IT will be monitoring this new scam as closely as we and and will share what we learn with you as soon as possible.

Be safe out there friends and never divulge info to a unsolicited caller. It’s fake 99.999% of the time.

Amazon, eBay, Rakuten, and other shopping sites are awesome for online sales but scammers will always try to take advantage of every opportunity they have to steal your hard-earned money. In this story a photographer shares their painful steps to try and recover her lost $1,500 from a scammer and what steps they had to take. And all of it has been face-palmingly aggravating. I for one hope that their money is returned. #scams #onlineshopping #security

As many of you know I have some owned the many calls from the Microsoft support department that is nothing but a cold call scam. The scammers continue to evolve their trap to catch people in it. Microsoft is beefing up the fall creator patch for Windows 10 to help address some of these problems. But as I always say it’s best to be cautious then overly trusting. Always contact your security and it expert first and know that Microsoft never proactively calls anyone about their computers. #security #scammers #internet #Microsoft
