Warning over computer phone scam

Hampshire Constabulary have been made aware of further reports of a scam where someone claiming to be from a computer software company – usually Microsoft – is cold calling people locally.

They say that you have a virus on your computer which affects its performance and then offer to fix it remotely for a fee.

This is a scam!

Do not give your bank details to anyone who calls with this or a similar story.

If you think this may have happened to you, please call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040, to report it.
