Read the article here (http://www.smh.com.au/technology/security/pay-up-or-your-pcs-toast-20100630-zm8i.html) and beware!
Haven't heard of that one Odille but I'll pass it around.
unfortunately I have heard of this one, these guys rang my friend not once, but twice. Thankfully he wasn't stupid enough to fall for it :th3:

Sadly, there are many who probably will. It pays to know as much as you can about how your computer works but many people don't want to. They are the ones who get caught in scams like this.
Thanks for the link Odille. Amazing what people get away with nowadays.:D
I posted it on Cat World to and three of the folk there have been contacted. The gall of these slimey unmentionables is just amazing!
i just tell them to hold on a minute and put the phone down, then hang up later
