This has happened for years and will continue to happen – as long as we have telephones. But YOU must be vigilant of criminals calling and trying to hack your computer, get you to buy things you don’t need or other illegal and unethical activities.

WSJ has a short video about these scams here.

Be paranoid of anyone who calls you and you don’t REALLY know them. Never give personal information over the phone. Help seniors to be more vigilant and LESS trusting.
