I Need to Borrow $3000.00

A friend of a neighbor came over to their house and said that he had an emergency and needed to borrow $3000.00. He couldn’t tell them what he needed it for and then he pointed to his phone and mouthed, “They’re Listening.”

Of course it was a phone scam and even though it’s hard to believe that people fall for these tactics, it still happens.

When it happened to my neighbor’s friend and he lost $3000.00 and then I received the phone message above, I thought it was worth posting.

Another version  of this is that your computer has a popup that says, “Your computer is infected with a virus – call this phone # …” I had that happen to another friend so these type of scams seem to be increasing.

Please be wary of these types of scams.
