Scam/Spam IT "Support" Calls Anyone else here getting fake IT emergency calls? Someone calls you saying "Hi I'm so-in-so from the IT helpdesk/tech support and we have been monitoring your computer, you have a problem with a virus" or "your system has been compromised." "Here is how we can help". ...really? I say; what do i have to do? Caller says: is your computer on? No I say. [first error on his part, how can he be monitoring my computer if the thing is off ] Caller says: turn on the computer and login. I say, OK done. Caller says: click on the Start button. I say, Start button? There is no Start button, you are right! Something is wrong! What do I do? Caller says: are you sure there is no Start button? Yes I assured him. I told him there is a Foot print mark in it's place. Caller says Foot print? I say yeah, ever heard of Gnome in Linux? I'd play along a bit more pal but I'm hungry and want to finish off my sandwich, bye. ...We have 2 phone lines in the house and this is the 4th call in a few months. I have call block but they are probably a different group each time. Like i said, if I wasn't hungry I would have wasted a bit more of his time.
