On-Line PC help
In the uk there is a scam where a phone call is received by persons claiming they are Microsoft and they have detected critical errors with your PC. They either offer to fix for a fee and get your credit card details and process a payment for a few hundred via western union and get access to your PC or just offer to fix it by taking over your PC and presumably putting malware on it. No cover with card company as you willingly gave your details. Can't be traced easily as they use western union.

Whilst on the online subject another warning is nothing is free. If a free trial is offered but give your payment details for postage don't do it. In the very small print on the offer that nobody reads it says you are signing up for a subscription and that free can be 2x £80 a month........ Ouch and you can stop future pymts but can't claim on the other as you agreed their terms. Nowt is free!
