22/09/16 New scam attempt.

Took a call from a lady purporting to be from BT Openreach, apparently I have an infected computer. Hung up after I let it be known that I wasn't going to press the windows & R keys, let alone the remote assistance bit to come.  The callers number 0024 052016...let's be careful out there people.


05/04/16  Scam emails

In the past couple of days, we have been fielding a large number of enquiries about an email from xxx on behalf of Cooknell Optronics requesting an invoice settlement.  Please be advised that this is a scam email which appears to be inviting recipients to click on a dubious link.  We at CEL wish to make it clear that Cooknell Optronics ceased trading some 4 years ago and has no "representatives". We are not directly connected with the defunct company and are in no way involved with the scam email, you do not need to contact us over this.

We advise that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you click on the link in the scam email. If you wish to report the issue, please contact


We trust this info is of assistance.
