BUSINESS BUREAU IN WESLACO AT
A SCAM TO WATCH OUT FOR
This scam happened to a Weslaco woman, age 73, just this weekend. She got a telephone call from "Jackie," who "works" for Microsoft, saying her computer needs a software upgrade. And to be able to do this, "Jackie" needs some information. The upgrade only costs $2.
DO YOU SEE ANY [RED FLAGS], YET?
Part of the information that the innocent Weslaco woman provided
was a credit card number. [RED FLAG] Presently, our trusting
Weslaco woman received an email, and once she opened it,
it stated that her transaction with Microsoft was complete,
through Western Union. [RED FLAG].
Our unfortunate Weslaco woman was out almost $195. If anyone wants you to make a transaction through Western Union, be wary. It's untraceable.
Before you take any unusual action where money is concerned (your money), ask a trusted friend or relative for an opinion. It could save you $$$.
Anyone can fall for such scams. None of us is immune.
Recently, on March 8th & 9th, senior citizens were exploited by those who have no respect for us. At a home on East Plaza Street, two females stopped to chat, acted as if they knew the homeowner, and then
one female asked to use the bathroom.
However, while she was inside the house, the "parasite" helped herself to the unsuspecting homeowner's wallet. They took off with
driver's license, Social Security card, credit cards, and $30 cash.
In another case, an 88-year-old man who was shopping at a local home
improvement store thought that the young man who offered to help him with
lumber and clothes hooks was only trying to be helpful. He did wheel out
the lumber carrier for the senior, but the younger took his payment by steal-
ing the hooks which cost $24. Guess that was the guy's tip.
UNFORTUNATELY, WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT PEOPLE
THAT ARE OVERLY NICE OR FRIENDLY TO US. SADLY, IT'S JUST
THE WAY IT IS NOWADAYS!
