Today I received a telephone call from a person puporting to be calling on behalf of, to use his wording, Windows. He then told me that Windows had found that I had a Virus on my computer and that he would talk me through,whilst I was on my computer, to show me how to eradicate the virus.
The person sounded as if he was of Indian extraction but when asked gave me the following telephone number 02032865123.
Has anyone ever had this experience, is this on the up and up, or is it just a scam to get into my computer?
Love to hear your comments. Weejohn28.
Thak you all for your replies. I have now run both AVG and MALWARE scans and no viruses were found on my Computer.
No I have not parted with any money nor have I phoned the telephone number which I was given, as I was highly suspicious of the whole episode, hence my query to the forum.
Once again thank you for your assistance. John.
