Computer Scammers Target Dorset


12:03pm 22nd July 2013

Beware of a phone scam which has cost a Charmouth woman £165.

Gillian Carter fell victim to a telephone caller who claimed her computer would crash if he didn't carry out 'on-line' repairs.

He then demanded payment, telling the now distressed woman that this was cheaper than buying a new computer.

She paid by credit card, but because she volunteered her card number, the transaction couldn't be cancelled.
