I called thinking they they were Google and they led me to believe they were. I needed help finding the identity of a person emailing me from a dating site, trying also to scam me and wanted to report that person. They frightened me into putting a 6 digit code into their downloaded thing, took control of my computer and showed me that I had koobface (I didn't). Then they tried to sell me a virus protection plan and were rude when I told them I'd need to get advice from my personal Mac technician before buying anything... I put the guy on hold and called my man who told me to hang up immediately, which I did after a little trackpad battle for my mouse to end the session sharing my computer with them. Was afraid they'd somehow hacked into my personal info so I've paid my tech for 3 hours today to clean everything up and make me safe.Show more
