Despite the police making a series of arrests on the mainland earlier this summer, the Bulletin has received a series of calls over the past ten days from readers who have fallen victim to the bogus callers. The callers claim that they have a package which needs collecting or a prize and they should call an 806 or 807 number for further information. As one reader explained last week, he called the contact number and was kept on the phone for the best part of half an hour at peak rate per minute. That is how the con artists are making their money. On the internet, users will receive an e-mail claiming that their order has been received and the cost taken from their credit card. Think about it, if you have not given your credit card details to any on-line shopping sites, it is another hoax. The e-mail will also include an 806 or 807 number to contact for further information... and you will be kept hanging on as long as possible.
