Remote Assistance

If you are after Remote Assistance and we have agreed to this, we will probably connect via Teamviewer to your desktop. Please download this Quick Connect program in readiness. We will require the ID and password once this is run.

If we require FTP access, please arrange for us to receive temporary FTP access to your server and let us know the details, URL, username and password. Thank you.

If we are de-bugging something like Joomla or phpList please ensure we have the access details, url, username and password.

Fake Email - CyberFraudYet another fake email, alledgedly from Barclaycard, but of course is quite fake and should be ignored. Report it by all means to phishing at barclaycard.co.uk if you wish.

CyberScam! No personal details given, just a link to confirm your details to increase your credit limit by £750,00 and the link, IF clicked, would take to you a fake site that is actually redirected via bit.do

Most obvious givaway that it's a fake? I've never had a Barclaycard!

sms imageJust received a text message this morning from 07751 634 682 stating that "Our records indicate you're in line for receiving compensation for a non-fault motor accident. Reply YES to claim now. Reply NO to opt-out."

As they are lying (I'm not on their records and I've not being in an accident) this is obviously a fraudulent text message from an unscrupulous "firm" don't reply to it, not even to say NO to "opt-out". It'll be one of these fake unsubscribe options where by confirming your...

danger iconJust had notification that the current load of spam eMails going the rounds which have a title of Invoice: followed by a number and an attachment, probably a word .doc are the newer version of Cryptlocker. Cryptlocker was a nasty virus that among other things encrypted your documents and the ONLY way to recover them was to pay the spammers some £300 in the hopes that they would give you the de-cryption key.

This latest infection relies on you opening the so called .doc file and then...

danger iconJust received a "Sainsbury gift card notification" email, and of course it's NOT from J S Sainsburys, the supermarket group, though it is trying to imply that so as to fool you into clicking on the embedded links which point NOT to Sainsbury's but in fact to various tracker.mcontact.pro sites and was sent from zepreem.com, again not Sainsbury's.

As always with those fake emails, you should never open such an email, nor click on any of the links and if there is an attachment don't open it as it...

danger iconYet another infected fake email appearing, this time allegedly from Fedex but in fact sent via dreamspaceny.com and telecomitalia.it in this case.

The subject was Bruce Neal agent Fedex sent from FeDex (!) and the contents where:

Dear Customer,

danger iconThere are currently fake, and infected, eMails going the rounds allegedly containing a Word doc with the title of cmsharpscam {at} gmail with the subject title of tracking documents (219alteregos: message 3 of 4)‏ which you should under no circumstances open, click on or touch with a ten foot bargepole!

Simply delete the entire email immediately.

Of course, the best option is to never allow it on your computer in the first place, and if others use your computer, at home or at work, then...

warning of scam phone calling numbersOkay, so it's not an infected email but it's nearly as bad!

There seems to be an ever growing number of nusiance telephone calls coming in day after day at the moment, all from such scams as the "Department of bullsh1t, sorry, Compensation".

Some fake firm trying to con us into giving them our bank details or in general wasting out time whilst trying to sell us some sort of compensation scheme, all ringing without having any permission to mis-use your private phone number.

So far the numbers...

danger iconYet again, there are fake apparent paypal "Please Verify Your Account" emails floating around the ether.

These appear to be sent from PayPal and look genuine, but of course they are not. They are in fact sent from paypai.com but the scammers use a capital "i" in place of "l" in paypal which in most fonts look the same.

As with all scam emails, never click on a link within the email, if you wish to check that your genuine PayPal account is still active, type in the PayPal dot com address in...

danger iconThere are currently fake eMails going the rounds allegedly from winning.com with the subject title of Re: Apply for your Claims which you should under no circumstances click on any link or respond to or touch with a ten foot bargepole!
