Me too. Thanks. And I truly do believe this to be true and agree with the "four motivators". I do, however, think there's a fifth motivator - some people just like to do something nice and good for another person and need no other reason to do so.

It didn't attack me! It's on the Good News Network website. I look at it often.

Was the attack from the internet or perhaps QuilterMom or some outraged bird who isn't getting enough Miller Moths?

Same here -- it is the standard microsoft scam. My whole screen filled up blue with a bunch of boxes and then it said I had viruses and said the call 888-984-7569. I blocked my number and called and someone from india picked up (I've experienced these people before and they are NOT from microsoft). I then hung up and guess what they called me back with this number 855-534-8621. TB, it probably didn't happen to you because you are using MAC OS. Anyway, I've had experience with these people and they are bad and know way more than they should. Someone we know got scammed by them where they said his computer had a problem and they asked for control of his PC, he unknowingly gave them control over his PC and then they required him to pay in order to get control back. He hung up and came to me to restore his PC back. It was bad. Do not be fooled by these people

So sad, because such a good article and they abuse it in this way. Sorry, but be very careful opening the article and do not be fooled by the blue screen Microsoft virus scam. Very bad and very good at deceiving. I was able to get to the nice article in the link and not sure, but after I was reading the blue screen popped up.

Just google the 855 number and you will see several sites. Here is one - https://www.scammer.info/d/36268-microsoft-pop-up-scam

I went to the website and sent them a message about the scam. Hopefully they can find how it's happening and fix it.

Cool. I wish this specific scam is finally shut down. They’ve been around much too long, what is really bad is they are able to see much more than they should. Such as my phone number even though I blocked it and the person I helped computer.

Most likely nothing will happen to the scam company, but I can only hope.

My husband used to have a lot of fun with the foreign Microsoft scam caller. He'd play along and say it's not working, I can't see that, it didn't open, then finally he'd ask, "do you need a computer for this, I don't have one?" They guy would get enraged and hang up. They called back a couple of times and he did it again, while they were cursing at him, he'd say "well, you guys are the ones who keep calling." They finally deleted our number from thier list. :multi:

We don't own a computer. Anyway, the Good news is for real. I used to look at it on lunch break at work, no hacks.

This is terrible. :yikes: I hate to hear ya'll are having this trouble. I have had no such trouble at this website and I've been reading it for quite some time. I just wanted to share something nice with you. I will also contact the website about this. Hope your issues have had no lasting impact.

I have been bored in the past and have gone along with their recommendations. I do everything they say, to the letter, and nothing ever works. I have been on the line with them for a good 15-20 minutes (they want to waste my time, I will waste some of theirs). Eventually it comes down to installing the remote control software, "what does it say on your screen?", when I respond "download for linux", I get hung up on. I know they are just trying to make a living, but I hate them.
And btw, the site works just fine for me, Arch linux, with vivaldi web browser.
