Telephone call alert: Beware this scam

police carBlaby police would like to make you aware that we have received two reports concerning telephone calls being received by an Asian sounding male stating he is from the Microsoft Technical Support team.

The male goes on to say; your computer is at risk and he needs you to open up your computer and give him information so he can get it restored.

Reports suggest that the caller comes across very convincing and assertive – but if you do as he asks your computer and telephone will be compromised.

This has already caused considerable upset to the people that have taken these calls resulting in a costly repair and great anxiety after bank accounts had been tampered with.

If you should receive such a call DO NOT open up your computer or give out any information, but contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
