In view of recent events that have happened to me, TWQ (the Weekend Question) is asking you to name any mail or phone crooks and organisations.
Can you name any crooks or organisations either by mail or phone that have tried to con you? List as many as you wish, and your experiences with them.
My answers are:
* Top of the tree are VITAMAIL. They sell overpriced medicinal items to elderly people, promise winnings in competitions that don't exist, send mail constantly and use recorded phone calls to say more messages are coming. Under no circimstances get involved with them. Type Vitamail in Google to see the many evil things they have done. My father mistakenly ordered something, and have only just managed to convince him how bad they are.
* I've had two phone calls from women who can barely speak English claiming they are from Windows, and that my computer has been hacked, and that I need to put in a 'secret code' into my computer. I saw through that scam right away!
* Despite living in Britain, my father gets mail promising non-existant winnings from places as far as Australia, Kansas and Belgium. I think our address was sold to criminals.
PUT THEM ALL IN THE TRASH!
Now it's over to you...
