We have just received notification from a client that they received a call today from a person with an accent claiming to be from Grimpond Marketing.
Much like the Telstra/Windows/SEO phone calls that we all get, this scammer wanted access to the client’s website and/or computer and started on her ‘spiel’, but was cut off by the client who was savvy enough to know it was a scam.
If you have any doubts about the veracity of a caller, never give them any information, and always ask them for a number to ring them back on.. This will normally cause them to start giving excuses, and clear signs that they are not who they purport to be.
If you know it’s a scammer.. just simply hang up.
Grimpond will never ring you out of the blue, and any call you may get will come from our listed Phone Number(which is not blocked).
If in doubt.. always hang up…
