OT: Virus Scam (Computer, That Is)

If you receive a call from someone with Indian or Arabic accent telling you that they are from Microsoft, that your computer is infected with serious virus and they can help you clean and protect your system, it is a SCAM. They want to talk to you while your computer is on, so that they can either infect with virus to sell you their product or steal information on your computer or both.

If the telephone number they're calling from / they want you to call is any of these, tell them to go to hell:


This is their website: Don't even go there, but if you ever see email coming from this address, don't open it.

Not-so-tech savvy seniors are particularly vulnerable. Please warn your parents and grand parents.
