In a matter of 5 minutes, I received two computer scam calls.

One was the Microsoft  Tech Support Refund Scam – which I’ve alerted you about.

The other one was someone calling me giving me a number to call (844) 575-1433.

When I called, because I was curious, I was told that my virus subscription protection on my Microsoft computer was ending.   My defense against these scammers is to sound like tell them I don’t own a Microsoft computer.  The muttered something and hung up.

Now, can get Virus protection software for FREE with my internet subscription, but I’ve purchases virus protection, for my network, and it alerts me on how many days I have left.

Just be careful out there.
just know

NO computer company will call you…ever.

NO computer software company will call you ..ever.

Just be wise…

Beware of this Hacking Scam


I got this from C-Net

Beware Scam computer techs


These perpetrators are making calls to people’s homes disguising themselves as computer tech support from a well-known company, claiming you may be infected by a computer virus. They ultimately want you to give them access to your computer to fix the issue. And once they have access, who knows what will get compromised?

I have had a friend who is tech savvy who did get one of these calls, and she asked what I.P. address they have listed.  The scammers then hung up. However, surprisingly, this is not only happening quite frequently, but also happening across the globe.

The good thing is that unless you give these scammers access to your computer, your system won’t get compromised, at least not from these people.

So, please beware folks!
