Wednesday 3rd August 2016

A Lerryn Resident contacted us to give details of the following telephone fraud and information given by the police when she contacted them:

  • The fraudsters are targeting 01208 numbers
  • They claim they are from BT Open Reach
  • They state that they have found a problem with your computer operating system, want you to give them access to your computer and offer to fix it for a fee

Advice from the police:

  • DO NOT give them access to your computer or pay for them to fix it
  • Report it to the NATIONAL FRAUD CYBERCRIME UNIT by phoning 0300 123 2040 or going online at: www.actionfraud.police.uk

KEEP SAFE!
