So I can understand how so many people fall for these scams.
Not so sure people are falling for these scams. I knew it was a scam when I ran McAfee and nothing showed up. And when they wanted money to fix the problem.
Bottom-line, the program that got me took over my computer. If I had a second computer I could have researched the issue, burned a copy of the solution on a disk, and corrected it on the infected computer. I didn't have that option and it was Sunday morning.
The program that got me was the equivalent of a digital strong-arm robbery or a ransom demand. I was livid. Both times I got hit I was at trustworthy news sites.
You might want to get a card with a new number.
You're probably right. I've been watching the card like a Hawk since this happened last Sunday. I have a lot of buyer protection programs. Today's article makes me hope the FBI have the servers with my number on it.
