Computer Repair Scams

 

I have been made aware this morning that personís are cold calling by telephone offering computer repairs.

 

I have made contact with Microsoft and they have given the following advice.

 

Neither Microsoft nor our partners make unsolicited phone calls (also known as cold calls) to charge you for computer security or software fixes.

 

They have advised that further information regarding how to avoid Phone scams can be found on the below website
