WARNING! DON´T TRUST "INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORY BLOGSPOT"

DEAR BLOGGER FRIENDS,

THIS MORNING I CLICKED ON A LINK FROM A GOOGLE + MEMBER CALLED "INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORY BLOGSPOT". THAT LINK WAS PUT IN A COMMENT HE MADE ON MY LAST BLOG POST. (I DELETED THE COMMENT NOW).


THIS IS A SCAMMER! DO NOT CLICK ON HIS LINKS.

IN HIS COMMENT HE BASICALLY SAIS THAT HE HAS A INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORY OF THE BEST INTERNATIONAL BLOGS AND THAT YOUR BLOG SHOULD BE ADDED- TO DO SO YOU ONLY HAVE TO CLICK ON HIS LINK AND REGISTER.

I BELIEVE THAT ONLY MAC USERS WILL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS BUT I AM NOT SURE.

AFTER CLICKING ON THAT LINK MY SAFARI WAS DISABLED AND I GOT THE MESSAGE TO CALL IMMEDIATELY THE PHONE NO 1-800 -789- 8393 AND CLAIMED TO BE FROM APPLE SUPPORT AND TOLL FREE.

THIS NUMBER IS FAKE! THEY TRY TO GET YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THEN  TRY TO SELL YOU A SOFTWARE THAT REMOVES THE VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER. I HUNG UP IMMEDIATELY WHEN THEY WANTED MY NAME AND GOOGLED INSTEAD THE PHONE NUMBER.

AFTER A BIT OF RESEARCH I FOUND OUT THAT THE SECURITY MESSAGE IS PROBABLY JUST A POP UP WINDOW THAT YOU CAN CLOSE WHILE HOLDING THE SHIFT BUTTON WHILE OPENING SAFARI.

HERE IS THE SCAM: THEY WANT TO SELL YOU A SOFTWARE TO REMOVE THE VIRUS (WHICH APPARENTLY IS NOT A VIRUS BUT JUST A POP UP WINDOW FROM THEM THEMSELVES GENERATED LOL). I HEARD THEY CHARGE $300. DON´T FALL FOR THIS SCAM!

JUST PLEASE DO NOT TRUST THIS GOOGLE+ MEMBER AND DO NOT USE ANY OF HIS LINKS! THIS WASTED HALF OF MY DAY AND I DON´T WANT YOU DO HAVE THE SAME EXPERIENCE!
