We always think we could never be fooled by these clever scammers, but think again. They would not continue running the scam if it were not successful.
A recent wave of clients have contacted us after a "representative" from Microsoft or "The World Wide Web" have called them and told them that their computers were infected, and that they might be financially or even criminally liable for infecting others. The caller then instructs the computer user to log on to their computer, go to a special website and grants them access to their system, so they can fix it immediately.
Now, before you laugh and say "really?” apparently they must be pretty convincing, because the clients that have called us about this are not idiots. These guys work on the rouse until they are smooth and credible.
Once they are into your system, they can install software (or spyware) that allows them access to your ailing system. Then, once they have run a piece of software that shows all the potential and immediate issues, they claim you must pay $400.00 (or some ridiculous amount) for them to clean it. They have been pretty forceful and often rude at this point. Again, this is their livelihood, and they know how to intimidate you into doing what they tell you to do.
While Colorado is a breathtakingly beautiful place in Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, the weather can be volatile and unpredictable within just 10 miles. "if you don't like the weather in Colorado, just wait 15 minutes" is not just a saying. A clear sky can turn cloudy and into a blizzard or downpour in just minutes, and a windy stretch of open road can become an ice rink in the blink of an eye. Follow a standard set of precautions while traveling through the mountains or on the plains for a safe and enjoyable trip.
Each set includes three of each image in the set and 12 envelopes. The cards are blank inside to allow for any occasion. The photos featured on these card sets are original photography by Clark Reeh Photography. You can use your PayPal account or a credit or debit card. Feel free to purchase as many as you would like.
During our annual monsoons, damage is inevitable. Visits from fly-by-night roofing and general contractors are also an annual event. Make sure you stay safe from scams and disreputable contractors by only choosing someone to do the work that you have completely vetted or who has been recommended by someone you trust.
