Fraud Help Desk continues to receive reports from people who have been swindled by a telephone helpdesk. It is striking that these victims themselves contacted this party, according to the organization.

The victims all called themselves with the helpdesk because of problems with their computer. They had searched on Google for the name of the program where the problem occurred and the word helpdesk.

Then they clicked on one of the first search results, hoping to be helped by an expert. They called a number from Amsterdam (area code 020) and then got an English speaking person on the phone. It only turned out to be the money of the caller.

The method of the 'helpdesk employee' therefore also resembles the so-called Microsoft caller. These are fake employees who have been known for years to lift people by phone.
