Keloland News in Sioux Falls contacted Comrade Technology shortly after our recent blog post below about how internet scammers work to get money for falsely claiming your computer is sending viruses. Here is the link to the news story on Keloland.com
In my previous post I explained and shared phone recordings from an experience I had with some internet scammers. I would like to take this post to show a few of the tactics they used or may use if they were to call you.
To the novice computer user, a call from a "Microsoft Certified Professional" about your computer contacting a server with viruses could really concern a person. Almost enough to get them to pay for a non-existent or even a free service. Late in 2012, I received a call from a customer who had this exact situation happen to them. IT WAS A SCAM.
