warning scam phone call

Postby untraceable » Sat Oct 17, 2009 1:07 pm

i just had a rather funny phone call from a foreign woman who said she works for the computer maintenance company (number was withheld) who told me my computer was corrupt and that it needed urgent fixing :!: (this made me laugh so i carried on listening to her) she then tried to walk me through running some commands (which i didn't follow) when i asked her what she was trying to do she said im going to show you :!: then i asked what she was selling and she replied nothing (yeah right) then she carried on with these commands i finally stopped her and told her i was a computer technician and then she hung up
so moral of the story if someone phones you saying your computer is infected or corrupt don't listen to them and hangup.
