    Fake Microsoft Office in the post

    This scam is extremely rare at the moment due to the cost. They typically target wealthy people.

    The scam is the start of an attempt to infect your computer. An official looking package contains a USB keydrive with the office logo, and a product key to install Office professional plus. Plugging this in will result in a message being displayed to inform you that your computer has been infected, and to call the support line for help.

Scams of any type.

Post scams of any type. If it is not from personal experience, check its veracity if you can; Snopes.com is a good reference. I shall be posting IT scams as I become aware of them, and you of course, can do the same.
