As the world comes to terms with the new way of working and of course the huge loss among our number it would appear (as if it is a surprise) that there are certain quarters looking to profit from or use this pandemic as a way to push their message, we personally have already seen fraudulent transactions on Paypal, ordinarily not really a problem just call and they will fix it, but this time PayPal customer services are CLOSED yep closed, even in this age of distributed call centres they are closed, and this is the real problem, as some businesses just simply pack up and shut their doors others seem determined to put profit over and above public health, not a huge revelation but there you go.
So for the foreseeable future you should really pay attention to the following.
- Check Bank accounts for unauthorised payments
- Be very wary of visiting websites that provide information on Corona stick to easily verifiable sites
- Don’t spend a fortune on supplements to boost the immune system, some help is good like vitamin C and so on but companies are already selling “immune packs”
- Remember that it is going to go on for a while, so stay alert and always check who you are talking to before handing over any credentials, companies will use messaging apps during this time make sure it is the company you want to talk to on the other end.
