Microsoft Windows Scam

Very recently there has been another spout of telephone scams targeting PC users into revealing their bank details through installation of malicious software.

A group of people have been pretending to be members of Microsoft whom ask for a remote connection to your PC claiming it’s for computer repairs and they then go ahead and install malicious software which tracks your keyboard inputs so that they can acquire your bank details.

If you have been approached by these imposters and have allowed them access to your PC then you are at risk, you should monitor your bank account finances very carefully over the next few months and you should warn your bank that your security has likely been compromised.

Remember, Microsoft does not make unsolicited phone calls to help fix your computer, they will never ask for bank account details for any reason and they will never phone to say you have won something.
