Phone scamming very widespread

4 August, 2011

It appears that the occurrence of scam phone calls in which a caller says that your computer is running slowly/has errors/has virus infections and so on is becoming more common.  I have seen reports from National newspapers such as the Guardian and local papers from Denbighshire, Knutsford and Derbyshire.

So, as I have said before, if you get a phone call from someone saying your computer has problems, just put the phone down, or if you have time and want some amusement just chat to them and lead them up the garden path! But don’t let them into your computer. Look at my earlier blogs on this topic.
