There’s been several reported cases lately on both Macintosh “Mac” and Windows computers where pop-ups come up instructing the user that their machine has been infected and to immediately call an 800 line. If you call, you will be asked to pay a fee to eliminate the infection and told that the issue must be dealt with immediately. Some will ask you to send cash by Western Union. A few people who have called us after the fact have given out bank and other personal information, paid some fee, and or allowed the people at the other end remote access to their computer.
NO Legitimate Source will ask you to call and provide any of this information.
The only infection that you likely have is the pop up itself. And it does need to be dealt with. Please never respond to these requests, and give us a call to arrange to remove the virus threat and secure your MAC or PC..
