My wife, Kathy, called flustered and concerned. “Somebody from India called saying they’re representing Microsoft and that our computer has been hacked! I told them to call back tonight!”
That night a convincing man tried to get me to turn on my computer and enter a code to thwart the supposed virus he claimed had infected my machine. I paused to think logically, which led me to ask him several questions like “How did you get my phone number?” and “Which computer has been hacked?” His lame answers revealed that this call was a scam.
Proverbs 14:8 teaches, “The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways,
but the folly of fools is deception.”
If you suspect you’re being deceived, ask thoughtful questions until you discover truth.
