Computer scammers at work

Have your say

COMPUTER scammers posing as Microsoft employees are continuing to target South Holland residents in a bid to hack credit card details and other personal data.

A local businessman contacted the Spalding Guardian yesterday after being called by fraudsters for the second time in a week.

He said: “I remembered reading about a scam in the Spalding Guardian, so I wasn’t fooled. But I wanted to warn others they are are operating in the area.”

Callers claim to be from Microsoft Security and say there are critical errors on your computer.

They offer to fix the problem for a fee paid by credit card.
