Help... Had a phone call today from someone claiming to know that my computer was infected with a virus, called a 'Trojan horse'. Can't remember exactly where they said they were calling from but it sounded like a call centre and he claimed that he could see this virus on my network or server or something like that, he reckoned it had flagged up on his system and it was serious and he had to call to fix it somehow? I'm not a computer genius so he could have said anything really. He rang me on my landline and knew my full name so it kinda sounded legit and wanted a few mins of my time to start up my computer and I guess he wanted me to log on to something or other? I didn't, as a suspicious customer I made an excuse and told him I didn't have time, he will be ringing back.. Apparently?
Now, what I'd like to know is, does this sound like some sort of stitch up to you?
