Phone calls reporting you have a problem ...


In recent months there has been an increase in the volume of reports about companies phoning customers, saying that they (the customer) have viruses on their computers. This along with the fact, they (the company) say they are from Windows, is a bit of a problem. I have heard that many people have fallen for this and actually paid money to these people and let them on to their machines. If you receive and telephone call saying that they are from Windows, do not believe them, Windows is owned by Microsoft and if Microsoft were to phone you, they would say that they are indeed from Microsoft. If you have indeed let them on to your machine, we can offer a half price service of your machine, to ensure that they are no longer there, using your machine to send spam emails etc. This would normally be 40 GBP, our special price is therefore 20 GBP Spread the word and let your friends and family know that this scam is happening.
