I did one of my voluntary gigs yesterday. We’re very aware of fraud these days, and one of the clients mentioned that she’d had a phone call. She didn’t recognise the number, so didn’t answer.
Exactly as I’d advise.
Only now, she’s anxious in case the call was above-board, and she missed something important.
I go by the mantra that if somebody wants to speak to you, and it is above-board, then they’ll leave some kind of message. If they don’t, the call is instantly forgotten. If it is important, then in the very worst case, they will write.
It just goes to show how somebody from the previous generation might think. I’m sure that when we hear about people being scammed, a lot of it is because they’re too open-minded.
