Today, while trying to contact Kaspersky anti virus I found myself talking to a gentleman from Albion technical support, whom I'd never heard of. While assuring me he would help with Kaspersky problem he 'discovered' my computer was riddled with viruses and said he would put me in touch with Microsoft, who would fix things. It was a real hard sell he was giving me, so much so I grew suspicious and eventually hung up.
My question is this, are Albion a genuine firm, or someone I was right to be suspicious of?
Would appreciate advice on this.
Thank you gentlemen, for some reason I thought Albion could help me, and they did indeed take control of my computer and told me they could fix things (for a fee)I felt uncomfortable with this, asked for control back and ended my contact with them.
My worry is that they may have left something nasty behind on my computer, though anti virus checks tell me I'm 'clean'
I hope someone can assure me that this is not a rogue firm - just a hard sell outfit!
Spuds I don't know how that spamadvisor does its checks but it has my website as 'UK based but may be American'. It's a very British site, and is hosted by a British host and registered to a UK address and has no mention of dollars on the site.
