Protect yourself from cold-caller scams
Someone local recently had their computer locked by a cold caller pretending to be from Microsoft. The caller then demanded payment to unlock the computer.
The best way to avoid this, and indeed other types of scams that originate over the phone, is never to accept cold calls. The best thing to do is to put the phone down. Remember, companies like Microsoft and Amazon will never cold call you.
If you are suspicious that something may be happening to your computer, disconnect it from the Internet. The quickest way is to switch off your router. Then seek help from an IT professional.
If you're at all concerned your financial information may be compromised, contact your bank(s) etc immediately.
And, keep your security software and operating system (Windows, Mac OSX) up to date.
