 Warning Phone scams

Phone scams are on the increase and the callers are getting better and better at it (and therefore more convincing).   They will keep calling to convince you they are real.

The scammers contact computer owners directly via telephone in an effort to convince them that there is a problem with their PC and they’ll need to pay to have it fixed. In general, the scammers cannot fix anything, and instead they merely charge exorbitant fees for absolutely nothing. 

The call generally goes something like this:
1. A foreigner with a thick Indian accent identifies himself as a support person for BT, Talktalk, Microsoft, Norton etc.
2. He informs you that you have a number of critical problems with your PC and that you will need to have it fixed.
3. To convince you, he offers to connect remotely and pulls up your Event Log (eventvwr.msc). He then filters for Warnings, Errors, and Critical events and uses that as evidence that your PC will soon fail to work correctly if you do not pay him to correct it.  There will always be errors here !

Be advised that the real companies will never ring you without you expecting a call.    You should know how difficult it is to ring them !

If you have already been scammed, please turn your PC off immediately and talk to us for advice before turning it on again.
