thougt people would like kno about this for friends and loved ones who arent too bright. last night a recieved a call from a man who represented microsoft or so he claimed. he asked me to turn on my computer so i could download file into it. well my computer is currently away at a repair shop so i explained to the man 3 times that i couldnt turn on my computer becuase it was away at a repair shop! i eventually hung up on him and called it a night. i try to be understanding when i get a foriegner on the phone since i know mine isnt there first language ... however something really stuck in my craw about this... when i got home today i turned on my wii used the internet channel and googled the situation. turns out this is what happens: a man will call from a tech support company, pretending he wants to help you or something to that avail. he has you follow instructions so that it will seem like your compauter will look like it has a virus. he will then ask you to do remote assistance and then he gets in and steals your information. i didnt fall for it but hopefully in me sharing this we can make sure no one does.
