Serious computer scam warning from police

POLICE are warning of scammers sending messages purporting to be from the Metropolitan police.

Several people have told police they have been targeted by the scammers who claim to be from the Met and alleging illegal activity has been detected namely accessing child sex sites etc.

The scam also mentions a £100 fine and Ucash payment. The computer is then locked on the screen.

The Metropolitan Police do not transact business in this way and anyone finding such a message on their computer are urged not to make any payment but to contact their service provider.
