A relative nearly got caught with this scam. The fraudsters wanted £200 to fix her computer.

I get these calls on a regular basis. They used to be 'Microsoft IT dept' but more recently they are 'BT IT dept'. I always call them out on the scam. It is has now reached the stage where they hang up when they hear me say 'hello'.
