    Here's a PSA for anyone that has an Apple phone, iPad, or computer. I just received an automated phishing call claiming to be from Apple telling me that there has been a security breach on my account and to not use any of my devices for financial purposes. They told me to press 1 to speak to an agent before I use any of my devices. It just didn't seem right so I hung up and called Apple and spoke to an agent. They are aware of the calls and told me that Apple will always send out an email before actually calling you. So if you receive an automated call claiming to be from Apple do not press 1. They are looking for your financial information. I gave the agent I spoke to from Apple the phone number they called from and she confirmed that it was a phishing call. That is the first time I've had that happen. I get fucking solicitor calls every day but I've never had one claiming to be from Apple.

    Just a heads up in case you get a call.

    Only as much as they can. They don’t have the man power for all of the “suicidal” guys that need to be watched. Even in the army, every time a guy was about to get in trouble, they are suddenly suicidal. It’s hard to take them seriously. That’s coming from someone who has lost a lot of friends, subordinates and family. Also been there myself so it’s not something I write off easily.

    Yeah, I get spam calls daily. Since I have an Los Angeles number I can filter them pretty easily. If its a FL number I answer it because it is more than likely work related. Plus I know were my vendors and such are.
    Any other number though, if it is not in my phone and I dont recognize it I do not answer.
    The gov't should crack down on that shit. Amongst many other things. :rolleyes:

    IIRC I think congress just passed a law that allows carriers to automatically block spam calls. But the problem that I see coming is if you want the spam calls to stop, I foresee the carriers charging a fee for the service. I seriously doubt it will be free.

    No problem :)
