It always surprises me how many people still don't heed warnings about online scams.
Ever since SP started we have preached about vigilance on the net.
Ignorance or foolishness is so amazing and I am personally very disappointed that people are still not heeding all
the frequent warnings.

Godfather,
I have had several phone calls from scammers lately.
That OLD one about "Your computer is out of order. I am ringing from Telstra. Please press 1.
Well, as I am with Optus for the computer, I just hang up. I NEVER press any buttons, it's dangerous!
These people NEVER give up!
