Cyber Crime Help

We have extensive experience in assisting with cyber crime.
There are free cyber security helpline services available online but their resources are very stretched and you are never sure if you really secured everything without a professional inspection.
Our service costs a flat rate of £65 per hour for individuals using remote assistance. Businesses typically require a more complex investigation and it is advised that you call for a quote.
Although we can help gather evidence, the chances are that the police will not be investigating and your best resolution will be to re-secure all your computer, logins and accounts to make sure they don’t attack a second time.

Cyber Crime Assistance

Cyber Security Help

A cyber helpline, also sometimes called a cybercrime hotline or cybersecurity assistance centre, acts as a point of contact and support for individuals and businesses affected by cybercrime or online threats. Offering a range of services and assistance, which can typically include:

Reporting and Guidance:

  • Reporting cyberattacks: Helpline staff can guide victims through the process of reporting cybercrimes to law/police cyber crime agencies and relevant authorities. (Although it usually is merely logged and not actioned)
  • Incident response advice: They can provide initial guidance on how to contain the damage from a cyberattack, minimizing further loss or harm.
  • Security recommendations: Based on the specific situation, we can suggest appropriate security measures and resources to address the vulnerabilities and prevent future attacks.

Support and Recovery:

  • Emotional support: Victims of cybercrime often experience stress, anxiety, and feelings of vulnerability. The helpline can offer emotional support and connect them to relevant resources for coping with the psychological impact of the incident.
  • Victim recovery assistance: This may include help with identity theft protection, credit monitoring, and recovery of lost data or compromised accounts.
  • Technical assistance: IT Pro Expert offers specialist assistance to remove malware, remote access trojans and to secure compromised systems.

Education and Awareness:

  • Prevention resources: Helpline staff can provide information and resources on various cybersecurity threats and best practices to stay safe online.
  • Awareness campaigns: They may lead or participate in campaigns to raise public awareness about cybercrime and its impacts.


  • Legal advice: Connecting victims with solicitors/lawyers or legal resources to navigate legal issues related to the significant cybercrime.
  • Business continuity planning: Assisting businesses in developing and implementing incident response plans and cybersecurity protocols.
  • Vulnerability reporting: Providing a safe channel for individuals and businesses to report discovered vulnerabilities in software or systems.

How do people get scammed online?

Scammers are unfortunately quite creative, coming up with new tricks and tactics all the time. However, some common methods they use to trap unsuspecting victims online include:

1. Phishing: This involves pretending to be a trusted entity, like a bank, government agency, or even a friend, to trick you into revealing personal information like passwords, credit card numbers, or Social Security numbers. Phishing can happen through emails, text messages, fake websites, or even phone calls.

2. Social engineering: This involves manipulating people through psychological tricks and emotions to gain their trust or make them act impulsively. Scammers might pose as someone in need, offer too-good-to-be-true deals, or create a sense of urgency to pressure you into making a mistake.

3. Malware: This is malicious software that can infect your computer or device when you click on a suspicious link, download an infected file, or open an unwanted attachment. Malware can steal your personal information, encrypt your data, or even hijack your device.

4. Fake websites and online stores: Scammers often create fake websites or online stores that look legitimate but are designed to steal your money or information. Be wary of unfamiliar websites, especially those offering incredibly low prices or deals that seem too good to be true.

5. Online ads and pop-ups: Some deceptive online ads and pop-ups can be used to trick you into clicking on malicious links, downloading malware, or subscribing to unwanted services. Always be cautious about clicking on unknown ads or pop-ups.

6. Investment scams: These scams promise high returns or easy money with little effort. Scammers might target people with promises of cryptocurrency riches, get-rich-quick schemes, or fake investment opportunities. Remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

7. Smishing: This is phishing via SMS or text messages. Scammers can send text messages pretending to be from your bank, phone carrier, or even someone you know, trying to trick you into clicking on malicious links or revealing personal information.

8. Romance scams: These scams involve building online relationships with the victim over time, gaining their trust and affection, before eventually asking for money or financial help. These can be emotionally devastating for the victim.

Here are some ways to protect yourself from online scams:

  • Be cautious about unsolicited emails, text messages, and phone calls. Never give out personal information unless you are certain the sender is legitimate.
  • Don’t click on suspicious links or download attachments from unknown sources.
  • Use strong passwords and enable two-factor authentication on your accounts.
  • Keep your software and operating system up to date.
  • Be wary of deals that seem too good to be true.
  • Do your research before making any online purchases or investments.
  • Educate yourself about common online scams and how to avoid them.

By being aware of these common scams and taking some basic precautions, you can significantly reduce your risk of falling victim to online fraud. Remember, if something feels suspicious, it probably is. Always err on the side of caution and don’t hesitate to report any suspected scams to the relevant authorities.
