    Scams can take various forms. However, these usually have a common target, that of conning their victims out of their money or obtaining personal details, like bank account details, PIN numbers or internet banking log-in details.Sometimes, while browsing the internet, pop-up windows may appear on our computer screens that elicit us to click and claim a prize. In reality, once we click, we are then asked to call a specific telephone number to claim the prize.What we usually are not aware of is that these calls are very expensive and if we fall victim to such scams, we will end up spending money on a telephone call on the promised prize which does not exist.
