    There is also an Email scam floating around that says if you don't click the link they provide in 5 days your Google account will be closed/deleted. It's been 6 months since I've gotten one my account is fine. They even sent one to my Yahoo account.😄

    My personal favorite is the FBI pop up claiming I've viewed child porn and have to pay a fine to unlock my computer and avoid charges. Because.... that's exactly what happens to people who view child porn, you pay a fine and everything is fine. It's not like its punishable by 15 -20 years in prison for your first offense or anything.

    Number 8 happened to me, a guy contacted me in fb and after 2 days he started sending me love messages, I though it was weird, so I looked his profile and I found something in one of his pics, I googled it and I found the real pic, it turned out to be a successful writer, married with kids, so I wrote back saying that he was a scammer and of course he blocked me, but before that I warned our mutual contacts on fb.

    A weird version of #2 is where instead of "a virus" it's "we're the FBI. We detected you were watching Child Porn. Pay us a fine or you won't be able to use the computer." It's mind-boggling that they even go to that effort. Just make a lock to pay, because who would fall for that? Yeah, the sites can be dodgy but not that dodgy (illegal streaming sites, not CP), so it would be weird to "hit" a guilty person, so you know your innocent, you know the FBI would just arrest you, so why bother with the pretense? Luckily, the one I got was weak, cntrl+alt+delete took care of it.

    Hmmm, the thing with emails that have a lot of mistakes does not always mean they are fake. I know a legit company who sends emails littered with spelling and grammar mistakes (mainly bad translation from the original English version). But they are actually real, official emails from a real official company...

    My daughter fell for the catfish scam and fell HARD! The "girl" she fell for was a military service member. "She" said that she wanted to visit my daughter in her next visit home. But the catch was, she wouldn't have the $$$ to access until a week later. Could my daughter go buy some gift cards, blah blah... had her sister not heard about this and looked up the picture and also the girl's name, my daughter would have been out of thousands of dollars. These people are HEARTLESS!

    I CAN'T lie, I almost fell for the "Your PC has a virus scam". I called the number and would have paid the $200 if I had it. The person on the other end sounded American so that made me more trusting. Thank you Poverty for saving my life 😇 (Please don't click on my face. I'm a germaphobe.)

    I'd be in the 1% rich people by now. Lol. I toy with them really well. I don't know who are people screwing with me, but I find them to be entertaining and making me wonder how they see people. Perhaps, they admire me. They do come back with different techniques, such as resulting in sending DEA, IRS, FBI, or cops. I actually have very good fun with them when I drive longer than 30 minutes. Right now, they sent me text messages that whether I want pills for free. I asked them to send me for anti-libidos. Lol.
    These people on the phone get desperate asking me to consult for depression. Yeah, right if I get depress over deprived individuals on the phone. I'm afraid to live in their heads. Lol.

    In case of the fake virus scam on a windows PC, you can shut your browser down with the task manager. hit the ctrl+alt+Delete

    keys at the same and a simple menu should replace your desktop that contains the following options:


    Switch user

    Sign out

    Change a password

    and Task Manager (click this one)

    Your desktop will reappear in the same state as before but a popup menu will load up showing all activities you are running.

    Click on the browser app and shut it down with the end task button on the bottom right-hand corner of the task manager menu.
    At this point you should scan your machine for any more malware.
