Beware - scamster ...

Recommended Posts

At 7.59 am today I received a call (on my Telkom line), stating that the caller (an Asian sounding voice) was telephoning from "Windows Maintenance Department" and that they were receiving an error message from my home computer. I asked why they were calling me and was told I need to go to my computer and enter some new codes. When I (tongue in cheek) told the caller that I didn't have a home computer the call was immediately cut from their side! The number which called me is 0016184658138 according to my incoming caller ID!

 

I haven't heard about this particular scam before so I thought I should just put out a warning to everyone else.

That scam has been doing the rounds for along time. The crooks will try anything these days.

Now why didn't I think of that?! Very clever.
