After making a post on Spey Pages, a message was received, I hit the link, my computer was immediately frozen with a notice that my Microsoft operating system had detected a virus that needed to be isolated and to immediately contact 1-855-382-4197 in order to restore my computer. To make a long story short, our technician had me call the number, ask pertinent questions, while he contacted Microsoft Tech support. The threat was a scam. Beware, do not respond to private messages received from fellow Spey page members outside of the web site with a link back to the website.
In the event this should happen, immediately shut down your computer, reboot, and initiate recovery procedures to a time prior to posting. Inspect your program list and delete all unknown programs.
