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 )
