Press Release London, 30 December 2016 - Scammers are increasing the number of calls where they claim ‘our records show you’ve been in a car accident’, according to call-blocking and caller ID Company, Hiya (www.hiya.com).

These types of calls were the most reported scams of 2016, says Hiya, closely followed by PPI calls, and calls claiming you’ve won a prize. The car accident scam peaked in October - the worst month of the year for mobile phone scams overall – with growth of 84% in the period January to November. PPI scam claims peaked in November and saw an 81% growth over the year.

The UK leads Europe in that it has the highest percentage of nuisance calls, at a significant 13% of all calls placed. “Defrauding people is big business, which is why the number of scam calls continues to grow and more elaborate schemes appear,” says Alex Algard, CEO of Hiya. “Scammers are getting more sophisticated.

They mask the calls by using common area codes so people answer them. Our advice is to be careful and trust your instinct.
If an offer sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.” The year in review: Newcomer scam of the year: ‘Lucky Winner’ Worst month for phone scams: October Scam that declined over the year: Betting, down 240% from Jan-Nov, peaked in March Worst area code offenders: (020) London (0161) Manchester (0141) Glasgow (0113) Leeds (0121) Birmingham (01922) Walsall (01268) Basildon (0151) Liverpool (0115) Nottingham (01792) Swansea Top Scams in the UK: Car accident claims, 84% growth over the year, peaked in October PPI scam calls, 81% growth over the year, peaked in November Lucky winner, 64% growth over the year, peaked in October Loan scams, 85% growth over the year, peaked in August All inclusive holiday compensation, 91% growth over the year, peaked in October About HiyaHiya provides enhanced caller ID products and services designed to make the phone experience better.

EnlargeEmmanuel Dunand/AFP/Getty Images reader comments 7 Share this story In an effort to stamp down on irresponsible drone flights, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)—which regulates all flights in the UK—has launched a new version of the "Dronecode." The Dronecode is a set of rules, regulations, and recommendations originally launched in 2015 that stated drones must stay within sight of the pilot, below an altitude of 400 feet (120 metres), that they must stay away from aircraft and airports, and that operators must use common sense to keep others safe. However, according to research conducted by the CAA, only 39 percent of drone owners have actually heard of the Dronecode, with only 36 percent being made aware of it at the time of purchase. To make things a little easier for pilots to remember, the watchdog has come up with a mnemonic aid as follows: Don't fly near airports or airfields Remember to stay below 400ft (120m) and at least 150ft (50m) away from buildings and people Observe your drone at all times Never fly near aircraft Enjoy responsibly While you can't help but feel the CAA stopped trying by the time it got to the letter "O," there's no doubt that some drone pilots could use some common sense. Earlier this month it emerged that airline pilots reported four near misses with drones in a month, including one flying near London's Shard and another at Liverpool airport. One pilot even reported he could identify the particular brand of drone that came within 100 meters of the plane because "his son had the very same model." Drone crime has also soared in the UK, with police being called in to investigate alleged pedophiles filming playgrounds, high-tech drug-runners trying to smuggle contraband into prisons, and even one occasion when a man was caught filming people at an ATM in Northern Ireland. Alongside the Dronecode, the CAA and air traffic control body NATS has also launched dronesafe.uk, which includes the regulator's rules as well as training resources. UK retailer Maplin said it will ensure those that buy drones in the run up to Christmas are aware of the Dronecode at the time of purchase. This post originated on Ars Technica UK

A man has been arrested in Portsmouth on suspicion of masterminding a £1.6m "cyber attack" on cash machines across the country. Allegedly part of an organised gang from Eastern Europe, the group targeted cash machines in Brighton, London and Liverpool by injecting a virus into the machines. The gang accessed the machines by drilling holes in them in the exact place to insert a USB stick containing the malware, dubbed Tyupkin. "An extensive, intelligence-led investigation has uncovered what we believe is an organised crime gang systematically infecting and then clearing cash machines across the UK using specially created malware," Detective Inspector Dave Strange told the Daily Mail. He continued: "Cyber-enabled crime presents a major threat to our public and private sectors and to an increasing number of citizens. The only way to tackle this is by law enforcement and counter fraud agencies working in alliance, which is exactly what the London Regional Fraud Team and National Crime Agency (NCA) have done over several months culminating in today's arrest." After the machines had been infected, the attackers were able to simply withdraw an unlimited amount of money from them at a time specified in the malware code. Kaspersky, the Russian security software company, first identified the malware that the gang used. It had been thought that the attacks used the Tyupkin malware, which only works on certain ageing cash machines running Windows, had been largely restricted to Eastern Europe. "Over the past few years, we have observed a major upswing in ATM [automated teller machine] attacks using skimming devices and malicious software. "Now we are seeing the natural evolution of this threat with cyber-criminals moving up the chain and targeting financial institutions directly. This is done by infecting ATMs themselves or launching direct APT-style attacks against banks. The Tyupkin malware is an example of the attackers taking advantage of weaknesses in the ATM infrastructure," said Vicente Diaz, principal security researcher at Kaspersky Lab's Global Research and Analysis Team.
