I received an interesting call today, Saturday approx 7pm, about possible infections in my pc.
A person (with an Indian accent) called me by phone and said he worked for "eprotectionz" and that he believed my pc was contaminated by viruses.
He asked me to do a cntrl R and look to error messages in event viewer in either Application, Security or System
If you say, yes, there are error's then he will put you over to one of there Microsoft Certified Engineers to have a look.
At this point they will be looking for remote access to your pc to fix the problems.
The return contact no given was 0258097072, and website eprotectionz.com - Global Technical Support | Computer Maintainance | Remote Technical Support | Computer Trouble-Shooting | Online Support | Instant Support but you cannot contact them till Monday.
This looks like a scam............
Do NOT let anyone you do not know have remote access to your computer.
This is a warning, these people tried this a few weeks ago, and tried again today and it can be anywhere in Australia.
PS I do not know if they have anything to do with eprotectionz.com but this is the contact details they are given.
It could be any company name and number that you cannot contact to validate.
Even if you could validate the contact number/name, A legit company wouldn't cold phone canvas.
