Do you know how to spot a scammer? Well Phil Muncaster from We Live Security has provided 10 signs to watch out for that should set your alarm bells ringing. They are:

#1 The message is unsolicited.

#2 They call you out of the blue.

#3 You’re being rushed into action.

#4 Something doesn’t feel right.

#5 Out of the blue requests to download a new update.

#6 A popup alert with a number to call in order to cleanse your device of malware.

#7 An offer that seems too good to be true.

#8 You’re lavished with love after just a few interactions.

#9 A request to fill out a survey in return for a gift.

And #10 Upfront requests for money.
