I thought I would share something with you. Today we received two phone calls and the caller ID
said private name, private number. The 1st call, I picked up the phone and said hello, no one answered,just a strange clicking sound, and then a busy tone. 2nd call, Hello, this is John from Windows tech support. There is something wrong with your computer. I asked how he got our number and that there was nothing wrong with our computer. If he was from Windows, he would know we have two computers in the house, he would not give me the name, address, and info for his business. I hung up on him after I asked how he got our number, and to not call us again. I did some research on the computer. Just put in the search window, someone calling from Windows. This is a scam!! They get people to fall for this and allow them entrance into their computer by following the list of things they tell you to do with your computer. They have scammed people out of 49.00 to over 500.00 dollars. Oh, the caller has a thick Indian accent,they are not calling from the US. I found out they have tried this scam in Great Britain and other countries also.Please if you get a call from these people just hang up. Pass this on, someone elderly or the really young people may fall for this an allow them to access their computers. Once allowed in the computer, they can get your personal and business info. I read that this has been reported to the FTC so hopefully they can find these people and shut them down. I have been angry and upset all evening because of this, it just irks me that people try to take advantage of other people. We try not to sign up for giveaways at the fairs and events like that so they can't have our number and we try to always ask that companies we do business with not to sell our info to other companies. It just makes me so mad!!!!!
Have a great week ahead!
