Telephone Scam
 We have recently received information from one of our Cheshire Police Alert users that they have been contacted a number of times by someone wanting to access their computer. A typical ‘Your computer is at risk’ scenario.


The number that the calls were received from was 0151 928 0076. 


Investigation into this number has shown a number of people have been contacted via this number and informed that there may be a virus on their computer which can cause issues with their emails, etc. and they need to allow the caller access to rectify it. 


If you have been, or are aware of someone who has been targeted in this manner please report it. 

    or online at


Do not be embarrassed to report a scam, scammers are cunning and clever.  There is no shame in being deceived.  Reporting potential scams will help prevent others from being deceived.


The little book of BIG scamsis a general guide in relation to many of the scams currently operating in the UK and aims to increase your awareness of the scams and teach you some easy steps to help protect yourself and others.
