People across the country are still being targeted by a scam operating out of India in which hackers pretend to be technical support and convince their victims to allow them remote access to their computer.
The hackers ask them to input their bank details and a sum of money is taken from their accounts. The scam has been in operation for at least two years and a spokesperson for the Data Protection Commissioner’s office said they are still receiving queries about it this year.
Two years ago, the commissioner’s office did investigate the scam because people were reporting that the calls were coming from Irish landline numbers. However they discovered it was actually operating from India.
