Hi all, I had a call about 6pm yesterday from a man who… sounding very urgent… said:
“we have detected a virus on the server you use and it means that you could be hacked at any moment. Please go to your computer immediatly and I will talk you through what to do…”
Luckily, although filled with feeling of panic, I said as far as I knew HE could be a hacker and asked him who he worked for. He said the British something-or-other. I hung up and still feeling in a panic, turned my router off.
Very dodgy don’t you think?
If anyone knows about stuff like this, being that I didn’t do as he said, am I safe? Can they somehow hack your computer just by getting you on the phone? (I’m nervous being online now).
Honestly it has really shaken me up!
Beware of this kind of call… he made it sound so urgent I could imagine people falling for it. Very pleased that I didn’t.
