The following report was received from a Bottesford resident:
"I have this evening had a telephone call from a foreign person, possibly Indian. This was reputedly a call he was making to all Windows users to warn them of a virus and to tell them how to eradicate it themselves. Of course you had to log in to the computer and he would talk you through it. I put the phone down but did take the number he was calling from which is: 004949055110. Hopefully no-one will get caught out with this but I thought it was worth reporting to you."
Googling this number throws up a number of reports from people who have received unsolicited phone calls, some along the above lines, others about different subjects which have only one thing in common - they all appear to be typical scam subjects. Always be suspicious of unsolicited phone calls or visitors offering services. There is more information about all types of fraud and how to avoid becoming a victim at www. actionfraud.police.uk
