They started by telling me to look for the Windows key on my keyboard. The one with the four flags on it, they said. When I told them there was no such key like that on my computer, they insisted there was. I said there wasn’t. …pause. But yes sir there is. I repeated there wasn’t. They repeated there was. To help move the conversation along, I asked why there would be a Windows key on my Mac computer? They said, Oh sorry sir, we are Windows only, and hung up.
It seems pretty obvious to me that this person’s sole intent was to extract login information, cash, or both from me. Don’t be fooled if someone calls you out of the blue to tell you that they have discovered a problem with your computer, bank account, credit card. This is a scam.
Never give your personal or login information to anyone that calls you. That goes for bank information, Facebook, anything. No legitimate company will ever call you out of the blue to ask for personal information. Give them nothing. Even if they call directly from Windows!
