Scam Alert – Telephone cold calls claiming ‘your IP address has been compromised’ – 9 April 2018

We are warning about telephone cold calls delivering a recorded message claiming your ‘IP address has been compromised’ and that you need to ‘change your IP address’.  It then gives you a press button option to ‘speak to a technician’.

These calls are not genuine and are likely to be used to seek remote access to computers, gather personal, account or financial details or attempt to take payments.

If you receive one of these calls do not press any keys if prompted, hang up and report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
