Whilst I am very pro the hunting down and naming and shaming of these people it is probably far better for consumers to report their suspicions to the authorities.

“We know just how hard people need to work to earn and save their money and we definitely don’t want some thieving scumbag hiding behind a computer or email and taking consumers money."
“Whilst I am very pro the hunting down and naming and shaming of these people it is probably far better for consumers to report their suspicions to the authorities or banking groups being illegally used by the fraudsters."
“We have seen a 60% increase in people searching for cyber security software for their personal computer equipment and we hope this guide will help them to hold on to their money and dodge the scammers."
