As we head into a new decade so do all the scammers. We advise stay vigilant.
- Hang up the phone if you receive a call from anyone calling out of the blue. Common scammers often assume the identity of BT, Microsoft or a Bank
- If you see messages on your computer suggesting you have viruses then check to make sure these are from your security software and not scammers scaremongering you into action!
- When surfing websites don’t click on flashing messages or any website suggesting you have a virus.
- Beware of emails using logos such as Amazon, Ebay or Banks. These may not be legitimate. Never click on these if you are unsure. It is easy for anyone with a little knowledge to impersonate a brand and lead you to a dangerous website.
