Scam artists try to trick you into trusting them by leading you to believe they are associated with well known companies. One called Citadel today claiming to be “with Google Local.” He was trying to pull a common search engine optimization scam we wrote about a few months ago.
The liar today called from (206) 397-1113. Other scam artists are apparently using the same number claiming to be with Microsoft or claiming to work for a computer virus protection company.
If you get a call from 206-397-1113, hang up; in my experience the person on the other end is probably a criminal.
