Vodacom scam?

Post by Dreamweaver » 12 May 2018, 17:01

I'm getting invoices, as attachments, emailed to me supposedly from Vodacom, a South African and elsewhere relative of Vodaphone. I haven't opened any attachments, so don't know what they say. I tried to contact them direct, and found that in order to deal more quickly with customers they have disabled their email service and take only phone calls!
I dream, therefore I am.

Scam, I expect. There's a huge amount of it going around at the moment. Best to be super cautious.

If I know I don't owe anyone money and have never heard of who sent it I don't hesitate but put it straight in the bin.

No clicking links, no checking websites. Trust no one. :icon_biggrin:
