All aspects of IT and Computer Support in Berks & Herts
Have you had a phone call from
"Windows Technical Department"
or similar?
Have you been rung up out of the blue by somebody claiming that your computer is having problems? These calls are always scams looking to fleece money from you. Nobody from any reputable company will ever call you and ask for personal details such as Bank Account numbers etc. Do not give these out! If you have done so, contact your Bank immediately.

Our advice on this issue is:
  1. Don't panic! If you have let someone take control of your computer, switch it off immediately and call PCBoB
  2.  If you are contacted in this way via email or phone, please do not provide the caller with any information, or follow any links in the email or download any attachments. Ignore the communication, hangup the phone, and report the issue to ActionFraud either via www.actionfraud.police.uk or by phoning them on 0300 123 2040
  3. It would be a sensible precaution to change any online Bank,  shopping and email passwords as soon as you can
  4. Most important of all, do please take special care to monitor your Bank & Credit Card accounts to look out for any unexpected transactions, and inform your Bank immediately if you notice anything suspicious
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any further concerns or queries
