Grandparents Scam - Phone scam where a caller claims to be a grandchild who needs money urgently to get out of jail or travel home. The caller often gets the victim to provide a grandchild's name, when the victim says something like, "Steven, is that you?", and the caller replies "yes it's me Steven". The caller will instruct the victim to withdraw cash from their bank and wire it to them or buy pre-loaded gift cards or iTunes cards and provide the code numbers from the cards to the caller.
IRS Scam - Caller claims to be from the IRS and they have found an error in your taxes. Caller says that if you don't send payment immediately an arrest warrant will be issued, sometimes they claim the police are on the way. Caller will typically convince the victim to obtain a pre-loaded payment card, iTunes card, etc. then have the victim provide the code from the card over the phone. In similar versions the caller will claim to be the police calling about an outstanding warrant or the Court Clerk claiming you failed to appear for jury duty and must pay immediately or be arrested.
Microsoft Impersonator Scam - The caller claims to be from Microsoft or "Windows" and claim that they have learned that the victim's computer has been infected with a virus that will cause the computer to become unusable. The ultimate goal of the fraud varies depending upon which con artists are running it. For example, they may try to sell phony anti-virus protection or trick the victim into providing bank or credit card information. Yet others convince the victim to allow remote access to their computer.
