Pop-up scam on the rise

This pop-up scam has been on the rise lately. The link below is a video of good advice from the WA Dept Commerce:
1. Be suspicious of someone contacting you out of the blue
2. Don’t click on the link, or think twice before you click on the link
3. Don’t provide personal information to someone you don’t know
4. Don’t send any money to someone you don’t know
5. DO NOT wire transfer
6. Verify the identity of the person who calls, and do not be afraid to ask questions.
