A friend posted this and I wanted to share it here with you all!!!
And so it begins!
Just to let you know these phone calls are going round:
‘Good morning, According to our system, you are likely to have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. This means that you now need to self-isolate for 7 days and take a COVID-19 test.'
'OK. Can you tell me who that person was?'
'I'm not able to tell you that. That is confidential information.'
'Right. Um... so ....'
'But you do need to be tested within the next 72 hours. So can I just get the best mailing address so that we can send a kit to you?'
'Ok (gives address)'
'Thank you - and I just need to take a payment card so that we can finalize this and send the kit to you.'
'Sorry - a payment card? I thought this was all free?'
'No - I'm afraid not. There is a one-off fee of $50 for the kit and test results. Could you read off the long card number for me, please, when you're ready.'
'No - that's not right.
'I'm afraid it is. Can you give me the card number please - this is very important, and there are penalties for not complying.'
Puts the phone down.
This is how scammers work. And vulnerable people will fall for it.”
Don't fall for it...watch out
Besides me saying never send money to someone you don't know, well don't give out your credit card number either!!

General Douglas M Fraser asked me to help him get his money. I was so excited to help a service man. Yeh right. The funniest part of this is, at the same time this Gen Doug is messaging me another dude using the same name and pictures starts messaging me. I thought this is gonna be fun. Unfortunately Gen Dough #2 did something and his profile was suspended. Oh well, Doug #1 was fun. Let's read this together. S o wasn't that a lovely read? LOL!!!! Now first off, if this is military email, it wouldn't be a gmail account. We know that right? Of course you do!!!! NEVER SEND MONEY YOU DON'T KNOW!!!!
