Hi,

I’ve used the mac once back in 2013, Even then it wasn’t exclusively.

Where can I locate a mac tutorial which speaks from an accessibility perspective, meaning, using the keyboard.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

I just use my first name.

It doesn't matter if you j8ust give your first name.  I wouldn't give my last name and I never or almost never hear that done.  Your first name isn't wo4rth anything to anyone.  I doubt your last name is either, but it identifies you more precisely as a specific person so I wouldn't use it.

I don't know what your greeting says.  If you want to tell us we can discuss it.  If you don't want to make the information public because others can see e-mail messages and because it has information you don't want group members to see, then it shouldn't be in your greeting.  My greeting only gives my first name and nothing else.  It just says I'm sorry I can't take your call now but if you leave a message after the beep, I'll call you back.

If you get a phone call and you do not recognize the phone number, let it go to voicemail! Just because the phone rings, that does not mean you need to answer it. If they leave a voicemail and it sounds suspicious, it probably is suspicious!

Take every precaution and screening your phone calls! I did not know about call protect until someone mentioned it on this list a while ago. I downloaded the app. We will see how well it works. I do not currently get many spam calls, but I do get a few and T-Mobile seems to protect me from them. I always get a warning saying scam likely when those types of calls come in.

If you think the phone call was intended for someone else, leave it alone. I’m sure they will eventually call the person they intended to call if it is legitimate.

Re: Where to share lessons we learn about scammer experience?

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Never, ever, give your SS. Number to anyone unless you know who they are and why they want it.

Also, if asked "Can you hear me now?" Do not answer "yes". Say anything else but not yes.

The IRS and places like that will never call you, they will send snailmail.

Oh, and if somebody tells you there's something wrong with your computer, bid them a good day and hang up.

Ask for proof. Think it through. I usually tell these kinds of people that if they send me snailmail, I'll consider what they're asking.

Screen your calls. If the caller ID gives you a number you don't recognize, then don't even answer the phone. If it's anybody important, they will leave a message. That's what voicemail is for.

Finally, when detecting spam, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If it sounds too bad to be true it probably is as well. Always keep in mind the Wizard's First Rule: people will believe anything at all so long as they either want it to be true or are afraid it might be true. Terry Goodkind

I almost got caught myself once. They told me they were from Publisher's Clearing House and that I had won $300,000.00 and a blue Mercedes Benz. It was nice to believe the guy for thirty seconds. <sigh> Oh, well.

Ann P.

Sorry, but you really messed up. If you don't know a caller, hang up. Most
of these scammers are from India, Egypt, Nigeria and such. I suggest that
you call the social security administration, your bank, credit card

sounds like they thought that you might be one of the Trump nuts.

Subject: [TechTalk] Where to share lessons we learn about scammer
experience?
Hi,
I had sort of a complicated, weird scamming experience. It wasn't just a
phone call I answered asking for crucial information. It went to voicemail,
saying something like danger at the South Texan border, and to speak with
Officer so-and-so for more info, press 1. I thought perhaps they called the
wrong number, that it was something someone else needed to know about, so I
tried calling them back. The number appeared to be for a business with the
prefix 877. The recorded voice asked me to participate in a survey, which I
didn't investigate completely the first time around.
Could that have triggered them to call again? The officer insisted that it
was the correct number, but I wanted to make sure. So he asked me for
information I thought he needed to check if I was listed on file. It wasn't
until afterI gave my social security number that I realized my big mistake!
I called my sister to discuss what to do. As we talked, her voice suddenly
became small and distant. She called me back, and she still sounded that
way. Later her husband called, and his voice sounded normal. They came
over to help me take steps for more protection. That evening I found a
message from her. It appeared that my bank had texted her, not me, saying
that my card was locked! She had suggested that the phone line had been
tapped, hence the change in sound. And by the way, I called that
business-type number and took the three-question survey. What I found was
something about getting a vacation!
I hope I've really learned my lesson. Never give out important personal
information, no matter how complicated and official the situation! Does
anyone know of a place where I can post this?
Thanks,

Re: A TB question

Gene
 

I don't use Thunderbird and I don't know if this is a general problem.  Is this the only message in the folder when this happens?  Can you move around in the message or is it just read?  What happens if you tab and shift tab?  What happens if you use f6.  Can you move out of the message using either method?  I'm not sure what is happening but those experiments may give us an idea.

Re: Another tip I learned from another list

I've said before that I think it’s a good idea for people to keep up with technology news, even if just casually by subscribing to some sort of technology newsletter.  I'm not specifically recommending this one over others, I haven't looked at any others, but Kim Komando's technology newsletter provides information about developments in technology.  You can just read stories that interest you.  You can quickly look through the newsletter to see if anything interests you.  Even if people read little, the newsletter will inform people of new scams and how scams are changing.  You may also find information you want to know about other topics.  But I don't think it is a good idea for people not to have some source for keeping up with at least what important technology headlines are in case something interesting or important is covered.  Technology and what it spawns is too central to our lives to not at least keep marginally or casually up with.  What I've written on this topic in my previous messages is knowledge I've seen in the Komando newsletter over time.  I've probably seen some of the same information elsewhere in the general press but Kim makes it a point of covering this sort of thing as a part of her coverage.
 
To subscribe, go to
There is a link that says "Manage newsletters."  If people have problems, ask here and I'll look at the site and provide more information.

Gene is right, scammers will try and make whatever they are calling or emailing about seem very urgent and you need to take care of it right now.

 

My mom got scammed by one of those “you have a virus” calls.  The script was something like, your computer is sending out viruses.  When she said she didn’t have a computer, she had an iPad, their script changed from a virus on her Windows computer to a virus on her iPad.

I do not currently get many spam calls, but I do get a few and T-Mobile seems to protect me from them. I always get a warning saying scam likely when those types of calls come in.

If you think the phone call was intended for someone else, leave it alone. I’m sure they will eventually call the person they intended to call if it is legitimate.

Just my thoughts,

Victor

Re: Another tip I learned from another list

Even if you do recognize a number, it may not be legitimate.  Callers may have numbers come from anywhere and there is a chance you will get a call from someone’s number you know.  If you answer such a call and it isn’t who you expect, be very careful.  Also, it is common now for solicitors to spoof numbers of agencies or organizations.  For example, they may use the number of the IRS or any agency they claim a call comes from.  I would never give any personal information to any caller.  I would call back the actual entity they claim to be calling from.  They will try to dissuade you by saying you need to make an immediate decision or some such pressure.  Ignore it.
