Computers For Seniors
The Scariest Internet Scams
Submitted by: Al Schindler

As you might guess, I spend a lot of time on my computer and on the Internet. Having been twice victimized by viruses, I speak from experience as to how easy it is to get a virus, and warn that it is common sense to be spooked by anything on the Internet that looks even slightly suspicious.

A recent scam making the rounds is where a fellow—usually with an East Indian accent, calls with an urgent message that they have to get into your computer to clean out some dangerous files. Caution. NEVER let anyone you don’t know get into your computer! It’s like handing over your house key to a burglar.

Other cautions you should watch out for are Facebook “friend” requests. Why would a person you don’t know, and most likely doesn’t know you personally, want to be your Facebook friend?

Free credit card scams. At our age, we should know that nothing in life is free!

Snopes.com is a fact-checking site that I use to check urban legends—you know the type: if it’s published on Facebook it must be true. Bookmark Snopes.com and keep it handy to use whenever something doesn’t sound right to you.
