Total money lost $219
Type of a scam Tech Support
Popup security warning from Windows on my recently purchased Chrome Book declared that my IP address has been stolen and used by others to watch pornography. Do not
delete the messages because to do so will infect other computers and Smart TVs in our house and steal more information. Told to call a number to get a licensed engineer to clean our computers, and had my husband open his Apple Computer. Charge for the cleaning and added applications was $219, which we paid to PayPal with our credit card.
I watched what “the engineer was doing—deleted Norton Anti virus and added two other applications on my husband’s computer. Didn’t remove or touch the Chrome Book. I called back. Told them what I saw. “Engineer” reinstalled Norton. I turned off my computer to delete the
Popup notification. Went to Goggle and found this was a scam. Immediately called our credit card company to have the card number destroyed and my husband removed the applications put on his computer.
