Halloween Background Sounds

In this week's Media Monday, I am featuring a montage of the sounds of Halloween from a variety of audio collections from around the globe. The Halloween montage can also serve as suitable background noise for trick-or-treaters.-

Clips from several sources are included in this collection, including:

  • 75 Spectacular Sound Effects (Vol. 1)
  • Haunted House - " Take the trip through the Haunted House. If you dare! Turn your home into a scary, chilling, fearful, domain of monsters, ghosts, and goblins."

Electric Company Phone Scam

In the event that you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from your electric company, beware! This is likely a scam, so please be careful.

There is a possibility that the caller could be claiming you owe money and trying to fool you into giving them information. Do not divulge any information to them as what they get could be used against you in another scam.

Scam Call

Last week, I got this call that I immediately knew was a scam. I gave them a fake credit card number (edited out) so I could keep him on the line as long as possible.
