Anglesey internet infection ??

I received this email from one of my customers yesterday…

“Hi ACS . I have just had a phone call from a very persistant young man (Dominic) from Globaltec(?) telling me there is a problem in our locality (Gwynedd) about an internet infection, wanting to check my computer. and starting to talk me through a process. I told him I was grateful for the call but I’d never heard of his company and would check with my own IT support team (ie you), eventually having to put the phone down on him. Sounds like a scam to me? ”

It sounds like a scam to me as well  and you did the correct thing in not allowing anyone you do not know connect to your pc. If you would like to hear a recording of how a similar live phone scam actually sounds like click here
