view counter

We have been made aware that local residents have been receiving phone calls purporting to be from 'Microsoft' or other large computing companies stating that there is a 'fault' on their computer. Callers will often either charge vast amounts of money to 'fix' the problem or they will try to obtain your bank details.

You are politely reminded not to divulge any personal information to anyone over the phone.Should you have a fault that requires fixing you are urged to get three separate quotes from three reputable companies. For more information go to or call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
