They froze my computer... told me to call a number... told me I had 25 viruses and for $625 they would fix it so I can use it viris free for the next 18 months. Like a dummie I fell for it! I talked to my bank.Show more
Fixosystem locked my computer screen and controlled the mouse remotely somehow. Warning banners that claimed a level 5 computer virus had been detected by the company and the 888 phone number showed on the screen as the only way to stop the imminent destruction of the hard drive. I called the boiler room, multiple men were shouting in the background. I was told it would cost $250.00 to stop the damage. I refused and was offered an over 50 senior discount of $100.00 just to "clean" the hard drive, for another $150.00 security could be added to prevent any future attacks. He demanded passwords and immediate payment before anything could be done. He insisted that the hard drive would be destroyed if I did not comply with his demands. Luckily a friend called as this was happening and advised me to hang up immediately and call visa to report the fraud. If not I would have lost $100.00 on Oct. 4th 2016.Show more
