Police close in on PC support fraudsters
A police crackdown has led to the closure of several websites linked to a scam offering unnecessary PC ‘support’.
The Metropolitan police force’s Police Central e-crime Unit (PCeCU) closed 19 websites linked to the scam in April. This action was taken because of the belief that offences were being carried out under the Fraud Act.
Despite this action, the fraudsters continue to plague consumers. Emails from readers show many other sites offering dubious computer support are still active, or being created. The evidence that we have gained clearly shows fraudulent activity.
