Be wary of odd phone calls

The NSW Police Force Fraud and Cybercrime Squad have issued a warning about a cold call scheme, which targets malware to be downloaded.  It is believed the caller asks the victim to download a software program which then shows a number of errors on the computer, due to being hacked. A request for money to be sent overseas is then made indicating it will help local police make arrests. If you believe you have been a victim of this scam contact police.​
