THERE ARE NUMEROUS SCAMS regarding "computer problems! my most my most common alive person call is Indian, but the vast majority are an American woman , she has done several different recorded internet fault scams plus £600 has been transferred out of your account, they al want you to "press1" tp halt the transfer, this puts you on a "premium rate" phone line which stays open as long as they stay on the line!i believe you can not cut it off!!
I'd like to warn all of you about a serious scam that you may run into. IF you get a telephone call or e-mail from a party that calls itself TECH-SECURE or TECH SECUR, hang up or delete ASAP. Do NOT talk with these people. They will try to convince you that your computer has been hacked and taken over and they will try to produce fake "stuff" on your computer to scare you into paying for them to "fix" the problems. This is a classic and very expensive scam. once they have you hooked, they will be back to scare you into paying to fix other problems such nonexistent "Internet" problems involving a Trojan, etc. All B.S. Beware. If you have a computer professional who maintains your computer, get him to come out and look into the situation ASAP. If you are good at recognizing accents, you will recognize that most of the scammers are Indian.
Best wishes to all of you,
