Not another Scam!!

Yep here is another scam and again it involves scammers pretending to be from Microsoft!!


What's the scam?

The scam is someone phones your home phone (where did they get your number from?!) they then tell your computer is comprised!! (Microsoft doesn't monitor this!!) and they need to remote/access your computer to remove the compromised stuff!


They will then tell you it only cost £6.50 per hour to sort this out and can they have your debit or credit card details!! and access your computer.


What should you do?

1. If possible make a note of the number calling you if it is not withheld.

2. DO NOT let them talk you into downloading any software onto your computer.

3. Hang Up - If they call back keep hanging up, don't engage with them.

4. Then report it to the ICO through this link https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/nuisance-calls-and-messages/spam-texts-and-nuisance-calls/
