what an odd message but bit scarey that a link takes you away somewhere...

 

did it look official apart from that?

 

can always let community police know, or paypal - hopefully they already aware...might even scan these sites for info every now and then?

 

mate had that tax office scam on hers, disembodied computer voice, freaked her right out but having listened to it on you tube I think it wasn't convincing... they tell you to contact them or solicitor, that costs to do so? and she checked with a mate who said bin it I think... the message rather than the phone.

 

too much data leakage, question everything I spose... shame innit.  probably making us all a little cynical and paranoid, I hope they can sleep at night these people..
