I have just had a ‘phonecall from someone wanting to talk to me about home security.  I did not want to talk to any cold callers at the time as I was trying to do some work, but anyway, just think how dangerous it could be to discuss your home security arrangements on the ‘phone, or by e-mail etc come to that, with a total stranger.  I have no way of knowing whether the caller in question was genuine or not, but just think if they were scammers, or worse.

My tip?

Never discuss security or other personal matters with strangers.
