On Friday night I had a phone call from a man claiming to be part of the Windows technical support team. He said they were aware of lots of viruses on my computer and offered to remove them. Trustingly I gave him info from the computer and he 'worked on' erradicating the problems for an hour and a half. He then called back and as my software was out of guarantee asked for £20. So I gave him my card details.
My kids say I have been scammed. In fact, worse than that my son who is an IT consultant says I mustn't now use my computer. In future I'll post to my blog from another computer but just want to know if any of you have heard of this happening and is it a scam or is it genuine?
