posted 08/15/2014 by firstname.lastname@example.org
In this world full of scam artists who target victims trying to gain personal or account information, or access to information through their computer, it is a good idea to remain alert and cautious when providing anyone with information. A new scam warning has been issued this week by Highland Communications saying that some of their customers have received phone calls from someone saying they need access to their computer because it has been hacked or has a virus. Remember that you should never allow access to your computer by anyone including someone claiming to be from Highland Communications unless you have initiated the request for them to do so. Also, officials remind you to never give out personal information, including account numbers or passwords, to an unsolicited request.
