Wow, I just got a call from them telling me they have been getting reports from my computer that I have some unidentified errors. They offered to help me fix the problem. Duh....just how dumb do these fools think I am?! I told them "thanks, but no thanks". But, if I am getting this kind of call you may be too. Do NOT fall for it!

We got that phone call at my office too. The lady who answered the phone didn't even think about what she was doing and she was walking through the "fix" when a co-worker overheard the conversation and intervened. It could have been a disaster had she completed the actions they were having her do.
