I have just had a call saying there are viruses in my tablet. As it happened I did have it on which is unusual as I tend to only use it in cafes or pubs. The person wanted £50 to clear them. The tablet I have got is only a basic 7 inch one and it is over a year old. I do have antivirus on it and as I could get a new one for about £75 so who would spend £50 on a 12 month old tablet?. In any case this is a con as I had only had the tablet on for about 2 minutes when the phone call came through.
I seem to have missed out on these. Its just ppi insurance refunds and extra loft insulation around here. I am well aware of the scams and I could enjoy playing someone along. If I have nothing better to do.
I have got some money with State Bank of India and I received an e mail saying my account was blocked. The money is safe as the bank is backed by the FSA. I did check with the bank and they confirmed nothing was wrong. I could look at the account over the internet but I have never had this set up as the account does not mature for another 3 years.
