Mobile Phone Scam

Recommended Posts

I first heard of this last week and hadn't seen it here so worth a post.

What happens is:

You receive an expensive mobile phone / tablet that you didn't order.

You get a call saying that there has been a mistake and a courier will come to collect the phone.

The courier comes and collects it.

The scam is:

A phone has been ordered using your details.

It has been delivered to your house.

You have just given it away.

You will be billed for it.

One link below, but won't embed for some reason:

***&&%^% pop up shite on that site.

Or I've got a computer that needs some kicking.

It's a useless and very annoying site Sarah, one of the many Satan-spawned that were previously the rather usable network of local news sites that was thisis.

I never imagined you had gone "modern" with cellphones! I always think you have a black bakelite phone in the hall, with a dial and a bell!

I imagine you walking dogs, dressed in a Norfolk jacket! I can just see your 1957 Land Rover now! :blink:

You mean me rather than Sarah I hope!

I have a smartphone with one app - maps. And I have a Facebook account but with no friends (literally none) because I don't like Facebook but was required to set an account up so it showed on a club page for which I was treasurer.

Bare minimum technology for me Mr Pin, the Dacia Sandero appeals because it has wind-up windows. That is something I would actually pay extra for!

I do still use a Bullworker Deluxe UK which is probably 35 years old and I have had from new.

If any of the buttons worked (what is WRONG with the site)? I would embed the photo, here is the link (it's model F):
