Scams / Warnings

Yes this may seem obvious to most, However always best to cover this kind of ground to make sure all are safe.

There have been two large scams going around ( though there are sadly more )

Either via Email :-

Your family member / friend are stuck in a foreign land and need you to send them some money, Sadly this does catch a few people out.

By Phone :-

Microsoft ( or another similar type or affiliated company ) phones you saying something like “your unique computer/network ID” has been shown as causing trouble / sending virus / spam , Or on the similar lines that your PC is at fault in someway , Remember this , Microsoft will NEVER phone you, and any “out of the blue” calls of this nature is a total scam.

 

As always if ever worried / concerned or need more info please phone us or email ( details are on our main site http://www.userfriendly-devon.co.uk )
