Just as I thought, not my system though, someone I know fell for the scam, I pulled the plug on their internet connection mid stream while they were supposedly "fixing" the problem when I found out.

They are in the process now of cancelling the transaction, changing passwords and all that other fun stuff.

You have to be careful nowadays, there are a lot of companies out there cold calling people, claiming to be affiliated with MS, telling them their PC is infected & offering "services" to clean it. The usual result is either they leave a trojan back door on your PC, install malware or they charge you for something you could have done yourself.

Example: I recently encountered a couple who got a call from such a company, & paid over $150 for "services" to clean out/optimize their PC with their "special malware removal tool." The "Special tool" turned out the be Junkware Removal Tool, a cleaner that is absolutely free for anyone to download & use.

I can't state with 100% certainty if this company is actually offering legit services or not since I know nothing about them. Some companies do offer valid services to aid senior citizens & people that aren't comfortable with technology. But for the most part, keep in mind these services connect to your PC remotely & anytime anyone does that, you are taking a risk. Especially if that connection is the result of someone calling you out of the blue saying your PC is infected.

Anything that needs attention on your PC can be found in this forum & there are some excellent tutorials here. If you have any question, post the issue & someone will be happy to help you.

[h=2]Tech Support Blacklist[/h]This list is being updated on a regular basis from our own investigations as well as from tips we receive from our readers. There are two main objectives with that list:

  • To protect people who are about to call for tech support assistance and want to make sure the company has not already been listed.

  • To provide assistance to victims that have already been conned and are googling the phone number they called or company they interacted with.
If a company is listed below, it meets at least one of the following criteria:
Criteria:

  • #1 Pretends to be working for Microsoft or ‘Windows’.
  • #2 Uses misleading tactics to force a sale (see an example here).
  • #3 Finds viruses, malware or an infection on a perfectly clean system.
  • #4 Validates a fraudulent popup or page as legitimate (see an example here).
