Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?
Nice to meet you, *****!
Who sent you the link on Facebook?
Can't remember. it was one of those product ads. I don't usually open them, I can't remember why I opened this one. I wasn't paying much attention. I certainly wasn't going to call the number given on the pop up warning.
Okay, so this is definitely a scamming technique.
Have you already dealt with banking issues, so you don't have any unnecessary charges?
Yes I am in the process of cancelling all my credit cards and having them re issued.
Okay, got it. Thank you for spreading awareness about the problem.
Have you reported the scammer's profile or advertisement?
Like I said I didn't think to take all the details. Thid was the second time this has happened. It happened months ago and I did the same thing just shut my computer off. If it happens again I will will make note of as many details as I can. I hope it doesn't I will be more careful in future.The pop alert will not allow you to go back or escape the only thing you can do is shut down your computer to get rid of it.
Thank you for clarifying!
Be careful with suspicious links.
I always a and try to verify it with trusted sources or just delete or ignore them. Thank you for your help.
