Hi iam from perth, i got a call from indian guy saying that he was calling from microsoft service centre and asked to install teamviewer and he got accessto my system.
He asked me to fill credit card details and fill application, i denied it, then he turned off the phone. then after restarting my pc i came to know that it was locked, it is asking for password. how to resolve this issue? Can anyone please help me out.
spuds, after getting the owner to look in event viewer (which as you know always shows some warnings or other) the scammer persuades the pc user to install Teamviewer (a legit program) and via that gives the scammer permission to take over control of pc.
Scammer then proceeds to find loads of 'problems' and asks for payment to fix them.
I think of it as being like having a cold caller on your doorstep who says he has information that your windows are not locked/or he's noticed you have some slates loose and so he has come to fix that and check your house/valuables are secure and - please let me in so I can have a good look round and then you can give me your bank details so I can charge you for my services - and no I won't tell you my real name or address I'll let you carry on thinking that I am from the 'Public Housing Safety Repairs Dept'
