    I too have been taken in by these vultures, while they have not asked four any money$ I did send them the info they wanted, which is basically common knowledge, like filling out a job application, I haven't heard anything back from them, should I be concerned?

      There is no need to be concerned, since the information that you have sent is not enough to steal your identity or money. But,the scammers, in an attempt to trick you, may call you back and provide you with the information that you have sent in order to gain your trust. For example, they may call you by name and provide you with the information that you have sent them before, which will make you think they are calling from a legitimate company. Once they have gained your trust, they will trick you into sending money or more information.

      Remember, people usually believe others who are able to provide them information that they think no one but public and legitimate private companies should have.

    In the last month I have received several urgent emails on having won $500,000 from Microsoft Nokia to no avail. They haven't stop and if anyone knew our back story, has enraged enough people wanting us to take it to the local news channel in hopes it goes national, because of back story makes this pure harassment; and what can someone do to stop this.

    It is literally inhumane whether you already know it is false; there are a lot of struggling people in this world and maybe microsoft needs to legally go after these scammers! DO NOT SEND THEM ANYTHING OR RESPOND !!!

    I received the email as listed as above and because of the names of the companies, I felt it was legitimate. I filled the information and submitted it..receiving an elaborate return message asking for similar information. I'm now concerned if there could be something that could happen to my computer and identity.

    delete


    • Posted: Aug 11, 2015 at 8:37 PM by info

      Nothing will happen to your computer or identity. The form that you filled out didn't request enough information needed to steal your identity. But, be on the look out for other convincing scams, because the scammers will use the information that you have sent against you.

    Why can't these people be caught? It is against the law, isn't it? These are probably the same type of people who start viruses. They should be punished also. The law system should make some examples of these people and maybe they would stop doing it.

      They can't do anything when most scammers live in other countries half way around the world.... Do some research an you will find a lot come from small villages in somewhat corrupt countries.
