Do you want me to remove you from my Mailing List?
If I'm on your list, then you're probably already "at risk" from"Rosalba" from"her" finding out what YOU have been "up to", you "naughty man":-rofl2

The "damage" to you, such as it might be, has probably already been done - IF you believe all that crap! :D

"Choice" is your's! :D

Warning - "Amazon"- phishing/scam calls

Yesterday (and before I ordered that stuff mentioned in the new "Autobot" thread) we got a phone call purporting to be from Amazon and saying something along the lines of "there is a problem with your order, press 1 to be connected to someone". Sounded "almost genuine", but immediately suspecting something, I hung up the phone - and we've not had another like that (so far!) so I'm failry convinced it was a phoney call.

Nasty spam in my mailbox today targeting TV Licence holders. Grammar/punctuation good for a change. Could trick someone not sure of their renewal date.

Link goes to Sweden :-ohmy

No problem for me - free here ( for the present...)

It's not that good in terms of speling (sic), though.

The very first line says .... TV License ..... not TV Licence

And it refers to you Direct Debit, not your Direct Debit

Nevertheless, it is going to be believed by some.

Well spotted :Y

A US spelling of licence, spammer probably using spellcheck - I did notice the word was auto-underlined when I posted.

The delivery agent won't have any problem entering the country, crawling with covid-19 or not - apparently there's no checking of incomers for nasties at Heathrow ATM.

You would think they would at least learn to spell the name of the comoany they are pretending to be, however the original one actually got through the spam filter
