Recent known infections and scams

10/30/13- KNOWN SCAM:

Several of our customers and even a parent of one of our employees have received phone calls recently. The man on the phone says that your computer is downloading malicious software, and that they were able to determine this by the user’s IP address. They say that they have been monitoring your computer for weeks…

DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER!!!

Here are some ways to determine something is a scam…

1. Microsoft will NEVER call you; you call them.

2. If they say they have been monitoring your IP Address, ask them to tell you your IP address, then you can go to whatismyip.com to determine your ACTUAL current IP Address.
