Re: TV License Refund..... PHISHING SCAM

I am amazed that in this enlightened age, that people are actually taken in by this rubbish. I suppose some must be or the scammers wouldn't bother.
Remember the old adage "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is"
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Watching various consumer programmes enough people do get caught by fairly obvious ( to us) scams.
They then go on the " sucker list" to be targeted by others.

I frequently wonder what suckers them in; stupidity, niaiveness, greed or something else?

I think that in lots of ways the older generation are more trusting ( not me) and are therefore more vulnerable.
We grew up in different times and some find it difficult to adopt the " if it's too good to be true it isn't true" attitude.
Things like dementia can leave them really vulnerable.
