Received a strange phone call this morning.
The lady I spoke to had a very strong accent (Asian or West Indian possibly) so much so that I couldn't understand much of what she was saying. What I did get was, she said that someone is using my PC without my knowledge and my PC is getting slower and slower, so could I turn my PC on and she will tell me what to do. I said I was busy and she said she'll phone back this afternoon.
Ive noticed each day in the last few days that when I turn PC on in the morning the Anti Virus (Microsoft Essentials its called) is not on !
Does this lady know something I dont ? Or is she just telling me that my Microsoft Essentials Anti-Virus is not on - somehow she knows this ?
Ive done a virus scan each of the last few days and no viruses have been detected.
Stupidly I didnt think to ask who she was or the company she worked for.
Should I trust this person ?
Any help would be appreciated
