Computer Hoax

Hoaxes

There are many hoaxes, scams and urban legends out there.  If you get an email with a warning or ‘helpful advice’ suggesting you should forward it on to all of your friends and family immediately the chances are it’s a hoax.

It is difficult to determine why hoaxers circulate fictitious information, it could potentially be for the knowledge that people have fallen for the story and forwarded the message on.  Hoax messages are likened to those deface websites to display their own name or tag graffiti on a wall.

Video About Computer Hoax

We also do not recommend participating in ’email petitions’, these are easily falsified so the intended end recipient will generally not take it seriously.  If you feel strongly about something we recommend using the legitimate sites such as HM Government E-Petitions where your views will really count.  Also emails which are forwarded multiple times may have many email addresses contained within the history so if it is a scam its likely your email address will simply be passed onto spammers.

Scams are more ominous, there is a financial motivation behind the email, usually to trick the recipient in handing over credit card or bank details.

If you are unsure if the email you have received is a hoax or scam, select a few key words from the email and search on the Internet there will usually be a report verifying if it is legitimate or fake.  If you are still not sure contact Crawley Computer Centre and we will be happy to give our opinion on its legitimacy.

I wanted to email you to thank you for recovering my data from a failed SD card. I was very concerned i had lost my childrens birthday, first day at school and my sisters wedding from the last month or so. The service was very quick well explained and I am over the moon that I can view all the pictures!

Many thanks again

I had a nasty virus on a Dell Laptop that completely trashed the OS and I didn’t have the original installation disks. Thanks to you it was sorted in no time. Thanks very much for coming to the rescue and rebuilding my machine. Very quick and a great service.

Check this out !! We all think we know all there is to know about computers RIGHT !

WRONG!! There was i 8000 miles away in sunny Vietnam and to save on baggage i decided to take my Dell Notebook laptop rather than the normal one i use..

I only had one chance here as i were setting up a cctv monitoring station and was imperative that i had wireless on my laptop So i switched on and was looking for the wireless networks but there was none..well we knew it was there but after various engineers trying for over an hour my heart sank. I called my computer guys at the Crawley Computer Centre and told them my fate..He asked me if i could get on to the internet and i did via a cable.

I logged into to their website and with remote assistance he was then able to operate my laptop..”Spooky A ! ” Hey bloody presto not 30 seconds later it was all fixed..

So next time you have a problem, “remember” you only know about 2% of how they work and think “Crawley Computer Centre”
thanks guys
