Private Detective Stockport Show Concern Over Rising Phone-Related Fraud

Originally published at http://businessprwire.co.uk/private-detective-stockport-show-concern-over-rising-phone-related-fraud-in-the-uk/

According to the article by Matthew Sparkes, published in The Telegraph on 27 February 2015, (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/internet-security/11439347/TalkTalk-customers-fall-victim-to-fraudsters-after-data-loss.html) there has been a data breach at TalkTalk last year which has resulted in fraudsters scamming the company's four million customers, illicitly obtaining banking information and then stealing cash from the victims. According to TalkTalk, the data hack allegedly occurred sometime late last year, however the company could not reveal more owing to ongoing investigations. The telecommunications company said a "small, but nonetheless significant" number of users had been affected. Allegedly, names, residence addresses and phone numbers have been stolen. With that information, fraudsters can easily call customers, claiming to be from TalkTalk and obtain bank details that allow the scammers to rip off unsuspecting users. A customer, Graeme Smith, has lost £2,815 after the victim was convinced by scammers to install a malware device that leaked personal bank information to a nefarious third party. In December, cusotomers were warned via email about the data breach and were again emailed last night to be alert. The company stated, "We want to help our customers protect themselves from scams so we are writing to all customers again to warn them about this criminal activity, with full advice, support and a reminder of the many free service TalkTalk offers to try to stop malicious scams reaching them".

Concerned by the events detailed in the news article published in The Telegraph, the detectives at Stockport (http://privatedetective-stockport.co.uk) speak out against the rising fraud rate in the country. The detectives remain very vocal about the need to bring in a proficient and qualified investigative agency to help control the frequency of telephone scams such as that faced by customers of TalkTalk.
