Telephone Scam "computer problem"
Got a phone call today from someone saying they represented a computer management services company, speaking in English with a heavy Indian accent. He said they had been alerted that my pc had recently been downloading "junk" & possibly spyware or at worse a virus, so I should check "event manager" & he could help clean up the pc. Now I'm no technophile but i do know that we were on holiday last week & the pc was unplugged & disconnected from the modem so what he said could not have happened, & I told him so at which he rang off.
Be aware this is a scam that has been going on for some years but maybe just reaching targets in rural france. Their aim is to get you to download a tool to "clean up" the problem but in reality gives them acces to your pc & files, plus they may ask for a fee which would mean giving your card details.
