DaFonts warning!

DhouseDhouse Member Posts: 57
Just a heads up on the DaFonts downloads. I downloaded a font called Amperzand and my computer started flashing with a verbal pretend Microsoft warning that my computer was compromised along with our credit card and bank info and requesting you call a number and open everything up to them so they could fix it. Not! We went into safe mode and ran a scan, nothing showing up so far. So, be aware.

    Firstly I'm not a expert

    I guess you realised not to call that number
    these crooks are getting quite sophisticated sometimes they even somehow prevent you form closing the window or the tab with the X

    I had it come up a few times on firefox not for I while though and a google search seems to imply it a malware infection but multiple scans found nothing either

    If you had any doubt if you paste that phone number in a reverse number look up often it will be listed as number the redirects to a scam call centre

    Also BEWARE that going to dafonts.com (note the s) and not dafont.com could be a big problem. Maybe that is where you ended up.
