    hehehe
    Called me on my landline.
    They tried to get me to give them remote access to my PC. I said I was no where near it. But I was near a friends but he was running Linux. THEY HUNG UP??? CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? Zero service!!!Oh well. When they asked for my mobile number I said I don't know the number. Xqze me? you don't have a mobile, Chistine asked.? Yes I have a mobile number but I don't know what it is. ......
    Not in teh script folks. I heard the Mama San in the back ground cheering on the troops "Don't give out the phone number". I got their address etc no more than what is on their website www.alertsoft.net and googled the address they gave over the phone. Turns out it's a TV repair joint in little India Sydney. Had a chat to the owner who claimed to be Persian. Which is what Iranian's say if they loved the Shah. He said he was going to report it. I already did. AFP? phhht! Nup this is a case for the gumshoes at the ACCC. Nobody expects the ACCC!!! Well gum yes Jodie Rich etc etc ...no I expect after a period of 6 years buried in soft peat and some Vogon Poetry the mollases crew will claim a victory over a bunch of 3rd generation fraudsters in Burkina faso.

    IF ANYONE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO GIVE THOSE ***** ANY INFORMATION THEN YOU DESERVE TO BE RIPPED OFF.

    Don't expect any help from the so called authorities.

    I had my first experience last Friday 17 June. Being tired I went along for the ride and now wish I had not. If they don't refund my money I am putting the matter in the hands of the Banking and Financial Ombudsman. Their number is 1300 78 0808

    got a call from alertsoft.com asked to have access to computor as there were viruses. went along with them which took 3 hours to finish for a fee of $107 apparentley clearing all viruses from my computor etc. not being very knowledgeable regarding computors as i'm in the later years of my life I thought I was doing the right thing. I now read the responses from other people dealing with this company and I realise I may have done the wrong thing by accepting their services. has any body any suggestions on what I may do ? your help wuold be appreciated.

    Hey please answer my spamming calls. How else can I send my kids to uni
    The company is AlertSoft http://alertsoft.net/ a bogus company using overseas call centre to fleece you. I also suspect them of using botnets to infect computers. The computer calls home and they know your infected. Why?. PC crashed with virus yesteeday. Today Alertsoft calls and say they know the PC crashed and has a virus. Can you add 2 and 2!!!!

    Had a call today and it was so pressurising, I was immediately suspicious. When I put their number into the search bar I found a lot of people were not happy and all the names are so English!! The Indian who spoke was Adrian Jones.

    I was also contacted recently and provided the call back number of (02) 8005 0456, I was asked to sit at my computer to check the errors. I was given the name Neil Atkins and the website www.alertsoft.net. I hung up when they insisted access to my computer by remote server. I have no idea if it was a scam.
