    I called the number and they said log on to my computer and use a specific search engine and type in (a bunch of numbers).(not .com, .net, something I’ve never heard of. They didn’t even ask me my name or an account number first. I told them I wasn’t going to do that and I was reporting them as fraud- which I did through the Better Business Bureau.

    I have also gotten this as a text. I have gotten 3 in the last couple of days. There is a legitimate site called PC Geek…..that’s why a lot of people fall for this. But there is a BIG difference!
