[access-uk] Re: careful regarding a phone call i just received

I agree, don't get caught, buy a Mac.

The business model here is simple, which frequently ends up in
extortion.  
1       Cold caller rings you claims they have detected a problem with
your Windows installation and offers to fix the problem.  Microsoft will
never ring you like this but most people don't know.
2       They direct you to a site to download their malware.
3       Once installed they can then extort money from you in order to
get your PC back essentially.

Don't get caught.

Regards.

Yes. My father in law had one of these calls recently.

I gather that the same business minds who are into spamming have turned
to the telephone because people are less inclined to believe emails any
more.

I wonder if there are call centres full of cold-callers out there who
know they're just conning people.

Will,

This is a hoax, a scam.  Something identical happened to a friend of
mine, and he dealt with the caller by telling him in no uncertain terms
that he would go straight to the police and report it, have BT monitor
the calls, and basically get to hell.  They've never bothered him again,
and I would do the same in his shoes.

Subject: [access-uk] careful regarding a phone call i just received 

        HI I just got a phonecall claiming to be from Windows support,
and saying that my computer has been reported to have loads of malicious
software downloaded on to it. 
When I told him I used a mac he went deathly silent and hung up on me,
so not sure what this was all about.

Regards, WIll
