WTAM 1100 – 911 Texting & Tech Support Phone Scammers

 
WTAM 1100 Newsradio Cleveland OhioThis week, I spoke to Bill Wills on WTAM 1100 Newsradio about how the national wireless carriers are going to enable the use of “text-to-911” to allow 911 emergencies to be reported through the standard text messaging system on your mobile phone.

While the carriers will be supporting the service, only a select few local city emergency systems are setup to access that network. Visit the FCC’s Text-to-911 page for more information.

I also brought up the continuing threat of phone scammers pretending to be your tech support company. The Geek Squad Blog has more details on this ongoing attempt to fool the public into giving criminals access to their systems.
