DON'T BE CONNED!

According to MSN a hoax e-mail is doing the rounds warning of a new virus and asking people to telephone a premium rate telephone number for details. The hoaxers are preying upon computer users' fear of viruses, hackers etc.

The telephone number is nothing to do with MSN.

The message reads as follows,


Dear Sir / Madam
ref: Windows Security Update.
Please call Microsoft Technical Support on 0871 750 for your Microsoft Windows security update.
Due to recently intensified Internet Virus and Hacker Attacks, it is vitally important that you update your personal computer's Microsoft Windows operating system.
Please call 0871 1250. Thank you.
Kind Regards
Microsoft Technical Support
Anti-Virus/Anti-Hacking Windows Update
Tel: 750 1250

As the software giant does send out security updates via email, anyone unsure about a message can go to microsoft.com/uk/support, or can check on www.microsoft.com/security to see if the patch is listed.

Crackdown on £8.4m African sting
IF IT seems like one of the most ridiculous scams in the history of criminal enterprise, that’s because it is.

But the phenomenon of the e-mail from Africa promising untold riches in return for your bank account details has got the UK’s elite crimefighters worried.
