Microsoft Phone Scams On The Rise In The United Kingdom

words of advice from community safety officer South Cumbria Terry Belshaw:

“These fraudsters can be very convincing to people who may not know a lot about computers. Don’t allow anyone you don’t trust access, remotely or otherwise, to your computer. The only way to remain completely safe is to not engage at all. My advice is to shut down, hang up, or close the door, to anyone you do not know. It isn’t rude – it is a sensible way to keep safe.”
Sensible way to keep safe, for sure! Once granted access to computers, the scammers look for passwords and financial details of unsuspecting victims. And few even have the nerves to ask for compensation for fixing some issues. It goes without saying that if you ever receive such a call, hang up on the scammers, and get in touch with the police to report these tricksters. Microsoft never ever calls users this way.]]>
