It never ends … the scammers keep coming up with new ways to get at us. The latest one I just got yesterday – a Skype call with a robot voice telling me that there is a system update that I need to install and giving me a website to go to. The voice repeated the website address several times … soswgo . com *DON'T GO THERE* it is a scam. I tested it, and it automatically started scanning and doing something. I stopped quickly, but now I need to run some extra scans on my computer to be sure I didn't get some virus. I'm not sure what it would do if you let it go – but it can't be good.
I checked domain name records and discovered that soswgo was registered just yesterday! In the Bahamas.
