Hey all,

Just thought I would post this as I was with a customer today, in their home (I occasionally fix PC's locally)

Nice christian couple, wanted their photos backed up and PC speeded up a bit, friendly people...

Phone rings


So I listen to this conversation with the customer and an obvious indian scam-centre... company name "world wide web servers", telling him how his PC had a virus on it and was transmitting it across the web!!!!

:tut:

OK, 95% of people here are up to date with the technology, as you're all forum users. But PLEASE, please, next time you chat on the phone with your mum or dad, just remind them that

someone who phones you is not someone to be trusted regarding your PC, bank, or any other service for that matter. Hang up.

After he put the phone down he asked me if I had plugged something in that had caused some response alert on the internet (I hadn't), and of course I made sure their PC was clean and safe... I gently explained about the phone scam business...

These scams do catch people out and it's a disgusting industry.
