I just received a call from helpwss.com stating something about an important security alert. I ignored the call and then blocked the number because it was really bizarre. I am wondering if it was a real alert, or was someone trying to be malicious? I need to find out if anyone knows what this was because my parents are older and this will scare them to pieces. If the call was meant to do harm, I need to warn my parents and grandparents. Thanks
I got this same call. It was an artificially created voice, and was basically a scare to get people to go to a helpwss.com (spelled out). It said that my computer's security wasn't good enough (umm yeah.)
I got the call from a user usa-a14.protection.alert.notice (this sounds like more of a targeted advertisement from the name), and this is the first place that Google came up with that was remotely helpful.
If there's a better place to share this info, I'll find it. I'm considering calling Skype tech support up. Paying customer or not, it's not something I want on my Skype.
Got call but did not answer. Hope this is a real Skype community site since I never entered here before. It would be amazing if the call had a fake site for the reports.
Add abuse to your block of this caller.
BTW, funny that Skype's spell check does not recognize the word Skype.
I have received same call 10 minutes ago and then again 5 minutes after. Have you guys found out what's going on? :s
