It has come to our attention that many home PC users (and some businesses) throughout Ireland have been contacted out of the blue and by telephone, by a company offering technical assistance for potential computer issues. This company offer to remotely log in to your PC and resolve any issues you have (real or otherwise). The end user is then asked for credit card details and charged $250 for the 'service'.
This company is operating in a fradulent manner having misrepresented themselves as technical experts working for our company. PaqIT Solutions would advise you not to interract in any way, but gather as much information as possible and report these details to the authorities.
