Caller: Supposed to be an IT Company telling you your computer is being hacked
They will ask you to perform an event viewer task on your computer. obviously their will be some errors or warning caused by either DNS or some trusted application you installed on your computer. They will then proceed to tell you these errors are because hackers are trying to get into your computer and will them try to get your personal information.
Asked me if I was the computer owner. Then asked if I was in front of it. I was asked what key is on the bottom left of the keyboard. I said ctrl. Then asked what was the next key and the next. Which happens to be the windows key.
I was instructed to depress the window key and the letter ‘R’ at the same time for at least 3 seconds.
I was asked what I could see on my screen.... I straight away asked him what I was suppose to be seeing on my screen... there were a few low key bleeps then he said thank you then hung up without answering my question...
I am certain there was two males on the conversation as I could hardly understand him. Then a beep noise in the background came a clearer line and a guy I could understand more....
I tried to call back. But as usual busy line...
My computer is still switch off... I never even started it up....
