We are more than a little cross and upset in this household. One of the more senior members of our family has been duped out of £120 by this Internet Scam.
He was rung, out of the blue, the caller convinced him there were problems with his computer that could be fixed remotely. They led him to believe they were ringing on behalf of Microsoft, they weren’t. There were no problems to fix, they conned him out of £120 and goodness know what information they have accessed by gaining remote access to his PC. We’ve got him to unplug the PC and we are making arrangement to rebuild his PC for him.
I’ve mentioned before, we don’t like being conned, please spread the word on this, we know of others who have been approached. Grrrrrrrr!
