Most of us are very attached to our computer devices so I felt it was important to share this new scam, which happened to me today.
If you receive a Pop Up Windows Warning, telling you it is a Critical Alert, you must call the number given or they will shut down your computer DO NOT CALL !!
Luckily I have an amazing computer tech that is readily on hand and when I called him he advised: DO NOT CALL Hold the OFF button for few seconds until Off, then re-start your computer.
If you call, they ransom you for $600 to release your computer.
I hope this can help someone to have a better day and save $600 !
