The following is an actual transcript between Networks Plus and a cyber thief looking to steal $30,000 from one of our clients. Luckily, the client was not duped and notified Networks Plus immediately. We thought it would be a good lesson to keep contact with the cyber criminal so we could document how this scam works.
Some things to consider to avoid this scam:
-double check email sender
-follow up with a phone call
-look for spelling errors and grammatical mistakes
-be aware that there are cyber criminals targeting you and double check everything.
