It appears not only do you have to worry about worms and viruses if you own a pc but now you can get scammed over the phone.
I just received the following warning from my community police officer:
Reports are still being received from members of the public about scam telephone calls from people allegedly working for MICROSOFT, they state that the software on the computer is out of date and that the system is vulnerable to hackers. They then ask for money to be paid by debit card to prevent this from happening.
PLEASE REMEMBER, DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OR CARD DETAILS OVER THE PHONE TO ANYONE, NO MATTER HOW PLAUSIBLE THEIR REASONS AND EXCUSES.
