Windows 15 scam

Posted: November 30, 2012 - 12:26am

There is a harmful scam going around that I was involved in Nov. 15. I received a call from Windows 15 stating my computer was full of infections and if this wasn’t taken care of my computer would be ruined. They said they wanted to help me. I went to my computer and after almost three hours of them “helping me,” they said I would receive a call from Western Union giving me a number and then I was to give them the number. It was then I became suspicious. I received the call from Western Union but called my provider to find out there was nothing wrong with my computer. That ended my call. The caller then crashed my computer. My provider said they put a bad virus in that only grows. How sad! I must say I can only feel sorry for those with such evil intent to hurt others.

I am 84 years old and never too old to learn, and I am not smarter than a fifth grader. I have a crashed computer which is nothing compared to the love I receive in Christ.
