Eventually we all realized emails telling us someone had died and we would be coming into millions were a scam. Now we're getting phone calls that begin, "The IRS is suing you"..."you can lower the interest rate on your credit card"... and "I'm with Microsoft Technical Support and I can help get rid of your computer's virus." Putting your phone number on the Do Not Call list doesn't protect you from these scammers nor does reporting them. You're also helpless on Facebook. Posting a warning that you're not allowing them to use your data is futile.
Maybe the only thing left for us to trust is Snopes.
