The $1000 Phone Bill Scam
Last month I got an email announcing that I had an upcoming phone bill that was over $1000, with a link to inspect/pay it. Since I was in the midst of wedding chaos, and plagued by inadequate Internet service, I chose to just go over to the phone store and talk to them in person. Guess what?? It was a scam. My phone bill was the same as usual and the Link would have exposed me to possible viruses and/or identity theft. This type of thing has to be stopped. What if I had a weak heart? Or was already so far in debt that this was the final straw? How can these criminals continue to prey on our citizens?
