On-Line Cyber Crime Warning


Story from Your Local Link.

North Yorkshire Neighbourhood and Rural Watch have released information about a con website selling under-priced electrical goods.

Fraudsters have set up a high specification website template advertising various electrical goods and domestic appliances.

The goods are actually below market value and do not exist.

Fraudsters will request your card details via the website; however the purchaser will then receive an email stating the payment failed and they must pay via bank transfer. The fraudsters entice the purchaser and reassure them it is a legitimate purchase by using the widely recognised Trusted Shop Trustmark. The fraudsters are using the Trustmark fraudulently and have not been certified by Trusted Shops and therefore the purchaser is not covered by the Trusted Shop money-back guarantee.
