I am Ceyhan and new for the Community.
I would like to share a recent "scam attempt" I have experienced through my landline...
Someone called Eric Wilson called from this number (or claimed to be calling from this number):8044355330
The storry is that I have viruses in my computer and I will turn my computer and delete curtain files...
It became quite apparent to me that something is very fishy here... and did not do anything...
And decided to ask you guys... Did anybody have similar experiences?
Or what is the worst scenario would be if I followed the instructions?!
Thanks a lot in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This scam has been going on for many years.
Just hang up and NEVER allow anyone to access your computer. They don't, and can't know anything about your computer. All you need to do is to make sure that you have up to date virus protection installed, free or otherwise.
Thanks for swift reply and advice... Much appriciated. Thank you.
I am glad that no damage is done.. I hope that the others will learn from my terrible experiences too and they will take extra precautions...
