    A few days ago as I was checking my mail a pop up appeared which said that my mcafee subscription had expired and took me to a web site that looked like mcafee. I was asked to renew my subscription. When I finished inputting my citibsnk CC details another pop up asked me to call 1800-967-8926 since they detected a virus on my laptop.

    The people who answered sounded Indian (from India).They were going to fix my computer by using Log me In, and demanded that I sign up to clean my computer. When we realized that it was a scam we just hung up. Never let anyone install Log me In and access your computer. Beware of scamsters.
