I am currently not taking on any new clients.

If you are an existing client, all is well and I am continuing service as normal, however, please keep me as your little secret for now.

Fake PC Technical Support

Right! I've had enough.
Lots of people are being bothered by this and it's getting worse, so it's time to alert all my customers and others alike.

If you get a telephone call from someone claiming to be from a company called Windows, Windows 7, Windows Vista etc etc, they will tell you that your computer has been sending them a notification that it has a virus and they are here to help you.

This is complete and utter rubbish. It's usually a foreign accent and they will try to bamboozle you with buzzwords concerning viruses and how bad it is.

One of my customers had them on the phone for 3 hours trying to "fix" the problem and they wanted payment. The more the call went on, the more suspicious he became.

There is no such service from Microsoft. When Microsoft help, YOU have to ring THEM and they WILL require a credit card BEFORE the help takes place.

If you get a call from these so-called technicians, the best thing to do is to hang up or you can say "No Thanks" and hang up, however you like.

If in doubt, always give your regular computer technician a call to check.

Bottom line is: DON'T GIVE ANY MONEY OR PERSONAL DETAILS to someone you don't know on the phone!
