I just received a call from this "VA" number stating that by being online my computer was infected with malicious software and viruses 1000 times worse than anything that could be detected by any virus software I may have on my computer. They claimed to be a company called I Secure VAP. It was a very thick indian-accented woman with a very English name who said she was located in Austin, TX. She provided a phone number 888-577-4003
) to call back (which does lead back to I Secure VAP... they also have a website). She wanted me to sit in front of my computer so she could walk me through the necessary fixes at no charge unless something was found and then a technician would be on the line. Said that all of it would be done by me, however, would not give me the steps beforehand so I could do them on my own. According to her I was receiving the calls because I was a "genuine Windows user" and a survey had been done in my area. I haven't completed any surveys regarding my computer. When I told her that I felt this was a scam call and that I would not walk through any steps she wanted me to perform she hung up.
