I would like to alert your readers to a scam.
My parents received a call today from an "unknown name, unknown number" - The man spoke in a foreign accent and told them they had an infection (not a virus, an "infection") on their computer. Said he was calling from Microsoft. He told my Mother it was free and all she needed to do was follow his instructions.
Obviously a scam and thankfully my parents were wise enough to hang up...but he immediately called back. They didn't answer.
I think the public needs to be aware of this.
He was either after their credit card # OR wanted to somehow hack into their PC. I would like to remind everyone to never, ever give out any of your information. Especially when someone calls YOU and not vice versa. I worry about our older folks who may not understand much of today's technology. Thank you, Jim, for sharing this.
