Gold FM received a call from a listener wanting to warn others about a phone scam.

She wants to remind people about how credible and persuasive these phone scammers can be.

Despite knowing that phone scams are on the rise this Waihi woman said the person who called her was just one step away from accessing her details when she pulled the plug, so to speak, and disconnected herself from the scam. But, she said she came uncomfortably close to accepting the lies she was being told because of the persuasiveness of the caller.

Never give anyone your details over the phone. Never download a programme for someone to access your computer so they can fix it or anything else they claim to know is broken or needs attention.
