Tell Marketers latest scam looking for INF files

Posted by jdbsound on September 4, 2014

Just got a phone call for someone who said they represented Microsoft.  They said they were getting coded messages from my internet address saying that there was a problem with my computer.  They knew my name, my home address and the type of computer that I was using.  That is sort of creepy that they knew such details.

Anyway, I played along with them.  They asked me to search for INF files on my computer.  They said this was code for infections.  Well, fortunately I know enough about computer to know that INF files are text files that tells a windows program how to install new or updated software and drivers.  At that moment, there were trying to take over my computer.  So I turn off the internet to see what they would do next.  That is when they asked me to look for certain files and email the files to them.  When I told them my internet was down, they hung up on me.

* * WARNING * * If anyone calls on the phone and says they are from Microsoft or Windows, they are scammers.  They want your identity and banking information and destroy you life.

This is a cautionary warning for anyone getting calls from Tell Marketer’s. 

This kind of call has happened 4 time in the last 2 day and all of them spoke with an indian accents.
