Tom runs a business selling beauty products online and noticed a significant shortfall in his accounts not long after he had clicked on a link he believed to be from an online auction site. Over three months, in incremental amounts, scammers had taken £14,000 from Tom’s accounts. Having failed to recover the money, Tom wants to be sure there’s nothing else that might leave him exposed to future online scams and hacks. Caroline transferred almost £1,000 to what she believed was the Lloyds Fraud Team safe account, but quickly realized she had been scammed. The team of ethical hackers investigate why she may have been targeted and how she can avoid being caught out again.
