    I called, they asked me for the serial number of my computer, I gave it. What they can do with that?

      Nothing. Just never allow a stranger who contacts you via telephone, email or by other means, remote access to your computer.

      With remote access, the cyber-criminals can steal your personal information, usernames, passwords and other sensitive information on your computer without you knowing.

    The same thing happened to me today - I granted them access and they wanted $300 to fix the problem, which I didn't provide because I later got suspicious.

    In a panic, I did call the number like an idiot. I feel like such a fool. I immediately added fraud alert to my credit files.

    I didn't fall into the trap, however, I believe something happened because my work email is no longer letting me login.

    Unfortunately, my work email is on my phone and my phone was comnected to my computer at the time that this happened.

    I'm hoping for the best and I hope they didn't access anything.

    I fell prey to them also, gave them access to my computer did not, realize until they started doing some diagnostics on it and the phone went dead and tried calling back no answer. I closed everything, restarted computer and called Apple and they walked me thru process of checking my Mac. Luckily nothing was done to my computer by scammers.

        This had just happened to me half an hour ago, you can go to "Settings" then "Safari" and clear all history and web data.

    How to get rid of this message when you have only one tab open? The message keeps coming back even if I kill Safari.

    I would like to have access to Safari preferences, but I can't figure that out.

      Your computer maybe infected with a virus, Adware or some other malware.

      Do a full scan of your computer with the antivirus software installed on it.

      Search Google for "free anti malware for mac" and download, install and scan your computer with it.

    I fell victim to this and let them into my computer. What could happen now? Totally freaked out!!!


    • Posted: 2015-03-13T21:31:06 by info

      Change all of your passwords, check your credit card transactions and have a technical person check your computer to see if the cyber-criminals installed any spyware, virus or Trojan horse on it.

    I fell victim to this and quickly realized that it was BS. Luckily I do not do much on that computer in the way personal info.

    Thank you for your post. Wish I read this before calling.

    For record, I spoke to someone for about 5 min before I realized that it was BS. No harm was done.

    I was using ClipDJ for the longest time with no problem. Now all of a sudden instead of getting access to the site I get the 'something's wrong with your computer-call this number crap.' It's the 800# listed above.
