Someone I know has just fallen victim to a scam I heard about on the radio a few months ago. They had a call claiming to be from Microsoft telling them their PC security had been breached. They then followed instructions over the phone and gave their card details to pay a fee. By the time they'd realised it was dodgy two payments had been taken off their card totalling about £200.

:(

Other ones to watch is

The card though the door with a phone No to ring to arrange a parcel delivery (premium No with no parcel)

Bank call where they offer to send a courier round to collect a blocked card. They tell you to ring your bank but stay on the line so your still talking to them.
