Virus Info:
A Trojan horse, or Trojan, in computing is a non-self-replicating type of malware program containing malicious code that, when executed, carries out actions determined by the nature of the Trojan, typically causing loss or theft of data, and possible system harm. The term is derived from the story of the wooden horse used to trick defenders of Troy into taking concealed warriors into their city in ancient Greece, because computer Trojans often employ a form of social engineering, presenting themselves as routine, useful, or interesting in order to persuade victims to install them on their computers.

A Trojan often acts as a backdoor, contacting a controller which can then have unauthorized access to the affected computer. The Trojan and backdoors are not themselves easily detectable, but if they carry out significant computing or communications activity may cause the computer to run noticeably slowly. Malicious programs are classified as Trojans if they do not attempt to inject themselves into other files (computer virus) or otherwise propagate themselves (worm).

A computer may host a Trojan via a malicious program a user is duped into executing files or browsing internet.

    Hello. Can you help? I was the victim of a scam when I tried to buy a microwave. I lost £326.20 pence. I have reported it to action fraud. I have also updated my report to say that the website is back up and running bi was scammed with They are now using the same name with .com. I am concerned to stop other people falling victim to them. I tried to pay with a visa debit card. I was advised that the bank had declined payment and they asked me to pay by a BACS transfer to a Barclays Bank account. I think other people have fallen victim to this. I think the site has been taken down but the .com site is running. Can you please alert people. Can you also let me know who else I might contact. Barclays Bank are saying the account was empty when I notified them so I cannot have any money back. Thank you. Michael Wilson

  2. You’ve commented on the wrong article but all the information and advice I, and the police, have is on

    In summary: Report it to Action Fraud (which you’ve done).
    Report it to your bank and ask them the procedure to claim the money back for “Internet auction fraud”.. and take it as far as you can (financial ombudsman?).
    Ask the destination account bank when the first date they were made aware of the account was, if you sent payment after this date they are probably more liable to refund you.

    If you read the comments on the page I link to above – some people have managed to get their money back. Keep at it.
