QuoteA police crackdown has led to the closure of several websites linked to a scam offering unnecessary PC 'support'.The Metropolitan police force's Police Central e-crime Unit (PCeCU) closed 19 websites linked to the scam in April. This action was taken because of the belief that offences were being carried out under the Fraud Act.Despite this action, the fraudsters continue to plague consumers. Emails from readers show many other sites offering dubious computer support are still active, or being created. The evidence that we have gained clearly shows fraudulent activity.Victims of the scam receive a cold call from India. The callers say they have been alerted to the fact that the person's PC has been infected with malicious software. For more details of how the scam works, see the story on page 2 of this article.Our latest investigation into this ongoing scam started when a member of our team received such a call at home from a company calling itself Click2support, which claimed to be a department of Microsoft. On subsequent calls that we recorded, our undercover reporter paid £89 for security software from this company, which Click2support said was worth £300.
QuoteCertainly if you receive call from comantra, supportonclick, thenerdsupport, securesecurityinfotech, thesupportonline, go4isecure, thesparksupport, winpctech, compstep, ordinateurassist, advpccare, techisonline, techonsupport, fixonclick, Log4Rescue and that too offering tech support then it means you are having call chat with online scammers who are right there to defraud you.
QuoteTherefore pertaining to this security giant has confirmed to terminate it's relationship with certain partners , who were found misleading the people and considering legal action against companies.
