It seems the Southend area is being plagued by automated telephone calls saying they are from Ofcom and about to cease your broadband connection. I've no idea how this scam progresses but I would bet they're after your credit card or bank details. Needless to say, this is a scam and to be disregarded. Unfortunately there is not a lot that can be done to prevent this type of unsolicited call, as they're spoofing non-existent local telephone numbers, adding an air of legitimacy!

Received an email detailing one of your valid passwords, suggesting you have been watching porn and demanding Bitcoin payments?! You're not alone, but in most instances you have not been directly hacked nor compromised. Rather, someone has acquired a list of usernames and passwords from one of the big name sites such as FB, TKMax, etc. Firstly, consider this as a wake-up call: change your passwords immediately and regularly. Secondly, I'd seriously reconsider using web sites that pay such little heed to your data security and confidentiality. If you are concerned your credentials may have been leaked, try the Have I Been Pwned web site, where you can lookup email addresses and check password security.

contact us if you require any assistance with this matter.
