Phone-spoofing

Phone-spoofing

Recently the staff of the Dundee Library were made aware of internet viral threats, where parties were hacking into an unsuspecting recipients’ phone and then sending them correspondence advising that in order to have their device returned, money would be needed to enable a safe of the item. In light of this , we are taking the opportunity to advise our patrons of this danger and ask that they do not act on the wishes of the alleged caller without first acknowledging their identity, known or otherwise. If you have been the victim of such a scam, make your local law enforcement agency (police department ) that you have been a victim of such an act. Having done so the following steps should be taken as specified below.

First and foremost, contact the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) by e-mail or directly by telephone, advising them of what has taken place , giving them all of the pertinent information likely required. In doing so , it assists the agency to investigate such a matter thoroughly. Failure to do so, simply places others in a similar circumstance, where they also become a victim of cyber fraud (internet fraud).
