BT claim they will disconnect your service

Lately scammers are contacting more and more people claiming to be BT and suggesting that services will be disconnected in 24/48 hours…

Some calls have been know to be automated and whilst other are live conversations, they are completely fake and are to be ignored.

Fake Canon Support sites

Type: Scam websites

Affected: Owners of Canon printers encountering problems with aftermarket ink that produces the error code B203 are directed to multiple scam websites offering to fix this issue.

Scam: Users that call the support number have their computers taken over by remote access (logmein) and are advised that the error can be fixed for a fee and also that the antivirus being used is no good and you should use theirs (which is costly and unnecessary).
