Fraudsters are a new method to people into parting with their money. They are to be technical support teams of people's ISP (Internet Service Provider). The new scam is very realistic and can trick even experienced Internet users. The fraudsters are the IP (Internet Protocol) of computers – this is a particular computer's online ID number. Once they have the IP, the victim a pop-up window with a message that the ISP "detected malware" on the computer. The victim is then to call a phone number for help. The Internet security company Malwarebytes said: "The scammers are to get people to call them. People are literally to be scammed."

Malwarebytes said most of the scams so far have detected in the USA and UK, but they will worldwide. Jerome Segura, a malware expert at Malwarebytes, told the BBC: "It me by surprise and I almost that it was real. It was a page from my ISP telling me my computer was infected. It was only when I in closer detail that I it was a scam." The fraudsters are online adverts. Once an infected ad on your screen, the virus works out your IP number. You do not even need to on the ad for the virus to do this. Malwarebytes' advice is to call the tech support number you received when you signed up for the Internet, and to not numbers in pop-up windows.
