In response to our Beware Of Fake Cleanup article, Roy writes: “Keep up the good work! It is a good feeling to get something over on those jerks. It appears that you have come upon the answer! Now, if there was a way to get them to remove your name from their calling list, that would be great. If you do find a way to do so, please post it for the rest of us unlucky beings. This is great!”
Thanks Roy! We do what we can. But as far as a do-not-call list for scammers, you might as well have a do-not-break-in list for burglars. These people are criminals, they don’t really care who they call. And most of them are calling from overseas, so our government has no authority over them.
And they really don’t have a list to call. They just call every number out there until someone falls for it. Now, if you fall for it once, you can expect to hear from more scammers. Your best bet is to stay well-informed and to keep up-to-date virus protection.
