I clicked on an article on Facebook and received a message that a problem occurred on my computer and call a specific number. The message stated not to reboot my computer in fear that my hard drive would be erased. I did reboot my computer and there nothing was lost.

Shortly after I began receiving calls from 500-01, 000-000-0000, 408-500-001, and 617-714-0762, 740-200-5131(IRS Scam). These numbers are from India and Massachusetts. THIS IS A MALWARE CALL ATTEMPTING TO GET YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR TO PAY RANSOM FOR YOUR DATA.

question: Voting Democrat or Republican". Answered Demo & that was end of call.
