    I ALMOST fell for this. A pop up on my desktop told me that my antivirus protection with McAfee had just expired. I walked thru the windows to have my credit card charged $39.00 and then called the 1-855 number listed above. They, then wanted me to run an executable program on my computer and I finally wised up and did not do it. Needless to say, I called my credit card company, closed out my account and they are sending me new cards. BEWARE, everyone!
