    2 days ago my work on the PC was stopped by a pop-up window telling me to 'not restart your computer' and Windows detected ZEUS virus. I was advised to call tech support on 1-866-342-1069 and share code B2957E to agent. I did, and after several screens and agreement to an technician '20 minutes removing' the malware placed by Russians and Eastern Europeans, committing to a payment for 4 months protection. I was told that the PC is not clear.

    I never have been in this situation and called Apple support, which cleaned all strange files from the hard drive.
    The technician and I also are wondering if I was conned to $$$$ without having a virus.

    The whole thing started when I was typing a draft e-mail. I had trouble with the address and tapped the help button. A screen popped up offering help, having already access to my screen and asking verbal questions. I later discovered that this help finder has put their name in my account file, which is locked, having in that way access to my PC. Also my firewall was unlocked.

    Any Advice? I need help baldly, not knowing now what to do next, and get rid of the bill. Thanks for any effort, Amlih.

      You were scammed. There were no viruses on your computer. Always ignore notifications that claim that your computer is infected with a virus and you need to call a specific number or click on a link to visit a website. But, always ensure that antivirus software is installed on your computer.

      About the bill, contact your bank and let them know that you were scammed by cyber-criminals.
