    Similar to above, but my screen froze on Facebook after I clicked on a headline that said Sir Paul Mcartney was dead. At the same time a recorded message claimed that Microsoft had discovered spyware/malware in my computer giving me this 0800 014 8546 number to call. The screen remained frozen and the annoucement remained for several hours so I called the number and was given the address 3 Unit 3, Penfold Works, Imperial way, Watford, WD24 4YY and the name Christopher Norris. I was told that the problem was Trojan spyware but for a fee of £199.99 it could be fixed and my security system could be enhanced and protected. I smelled a rat called my bank who suggested that it was all part of a scam and advised I cease contact. I was originally fooled by the BT 0800 phone number and the genuine(?) UK address.- Be warned and be aware.

    These scum left a message on my PC saying there was a virus on my computer and all my details were being hacked.

    They stole £840 from my bank account in June this year and looks like they are trying to do it again.

    Beware and ignore these thieving animals.

    Call purporting to be from Facebook, reporting that my computer had been infected. Ring this number urgently.
    Decided not to.
