   How to stay safe and protected from scam calls    7 March, 2019

It's probably a scam if someone calls you out of the blue to:

  • tell you your service has been hacked
  • try to remotely take control of your computer or another device 
  • tell you they have found a problem with your computer
  • ask you for an urgent payment and threaten to disconnect your service
  • ask for payment details to activate Call Protect, Caller Display, or any of our free services.

If something doesn't seem right, you can still in control.Make sure not to give out any personal details and hang up the phone.
