This is just another awareness post as scammers are hitting every corner of our society. They use methods to make us feel insecure or offer us something which is too good to be true.
Be vigilent if you recieve unexpected messages appearing on your pc, laptop, mac, tablet or even phone. These scammers also thrive on many local social groups. The messages may suggest you have a virus or that your security is not up to date. They may offer you incentives such as unclaimed lottery wins, big pay rates, ways to make easy money, tell you that you are due a tax refund or that you must urgently contact HMRC regarding a due payment. Many scams even suggest you have pornography on your system and that you must pay a ransome.
