Computer centre warns of scam

Have your say

A COMPUTER store in Grantham is warning people of a dangerous scam doing the rounds in the Grantham area.

David Charles, owner of Grantham Computer Centre, in Guildhall Street, contacted the Journal after calls to his shop increased. Customers have been receiving calls from people claiming to work for Microsoft and other software companies, saying they are aware of problems with their computers.

In some cases they have persuaded customers to let them take control of the machine.

David said software companies do not make such calls and is urging recipients of such calls to put the phone down.
