C&C Advisory: Computer related phone scam

Faculty, staff, students and retirees should be aware that there is a computer-related telephone scam circulating in the St. John¹s area. If you are contacted through an unsolicited telephone call by someone who claims that your computer has any malfunction or who offer their services to work on your computer, this is a phone scam so please do not provide any personal information or any financial information such as credit card numbers or banking information. If you have been contacted, or if you feel you may be a victim, contact your bank or financial institution immediately and report the fraudulent activity to local authorities.

For further information on how to protect yourself online, clients are encouraged to complete the free computer security awareness training being offered by C&C and DELTS. Read more about it here:
