Have you ever received an e-mail that you suspected of being a scam?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 8, 2005
“Yeah. They said if I gave them my checking account number to withdraw $300, they would give me a computer, a digital camera and five magazine subscriptions for a year.”
“Oh yeah. I never opened them because I knew they were a scam. Anything involving free anything is probably a scam.”
“Yes. They are usually from a bank with an official logo asking me to contact them about a security problem with my checking account number. I’ve heard people in the banking industry say it’s a pretty common scam.”
“Yeah I have. It was about someone sharing property with me or something.”
