The Tip of the Week is- people still continue to receive computer cold call scams. You the owner of the computer receive an uninvited call from a call centre abroad, the number may appear to be Irish and the caller may use your name. The caller will ask if you have a PC in the house and say they are calling on behalf of a well known computer company and will check your computer for problems.
Do not give these people any personal details which will give them access to your computer, just put the phone down.
