An abrupt goodbye is the easiest solution according to Crozier, before things get to far.

"Never talk to anyone calling or emailing you, never follow any links or numbers provided to you and always go into your accounts on your own to verify any activity that that a scammer may try to tell you is happening. Don’t feel bad about it, cut them off mid conversation by simply just hanging up."

If you feel like a situation over the phone might be fishy, there is a good chance it is. Take the above tips, and make sure to contact your local RCMP detachment to share any scam activity directly.
