Current Internet Scams

Windows Technical Support Phone Call
Many of our Customers are getting Phone Calls from people claiming to be from Windows Technical Support saying that the Customers Computer is infected and running slow and needs fixing.

Firstly, Microsoft (Windows) will NEVER call you! They seem to have many details about the Customers, like Full Name, Address and Phone Number. How would Microsoft know your Name, Address and Phone Number? They wouldn't! These Scammers probably bought some old, hacked database.

DO NOT talk to them and DON'T let them download any Software to your Computer or give them Remote Access. They will try to get you to run the Windows Process Checker that shows multiple errors, but EVERY Computer shows these errors as a normal part of running Windows! Then they will ask you to pay over the phone by Credit Card or ask for your Bank Account Details. HANG UP ON THEM!

DHL Unsuccessful Delivery Email
If you get an email from a Delivery Company about an unsuccessful Delivery,
DO NOT open the attachment or click on any links! This is a Trojan that installs Malicious Software.
NO DELIVERY COMPANY WILL EMAIL YOU ABOUT AN UNSUCCESSFUL DELIVERY!
They will leave a Note or Card.

Bank Account Verification Email
If you get an email from a Bank about ANYTHING that asks you to verify your Account Details, STOP!
NO BANK WILL EVER EMAIL YOU TO VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT DETAILS!
They will call you and ask you to come into your Local Branch.

Taxation Department Refund Email
If you get an email from the ATO about ANYTHING that asks you to verify your Bank Account Details, STOP! THE ATO WILL NEVER EMAIL YOU TO GIVE YOU MONEY!
