Internet fraud and scams - what you can do about it

Recently, one of the greatest concerns affecting innocent computer users has been cold calls from fraudulent support companies. I posted a news article on this last year.

What has been bothering me though, is the lack of action that can be taken against these threats. However, it appears that we can each do our own little bit in protecting the internet community.

As recommended by a local police officer, you can visit the Internet Watch Foundation and Action Fraud and provide as much information as possible. If you ever recognise a scam, try to find out a website for the fraudulent company, phone number, email address and names.
