We have had calls from concerned residents saying that their internet provider has called them to say that there has been unauthorised usage of their internet, namely that while the accountholder is surfing the net, someone else is at the same time by using their log in details, they are then told to down load an app, which gives the caller control of their pc, this is a scam, internet providers will not call to say this. If you have any calls similar to this do not let them have access to your equipment, end the call & call action fraud on the number below.
