DaFonts warning!

DhouseDhouse Member Posts: 62
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.
    Still using MTC but slowly migrating to SCAL. KNK cutters including the Force and Maxx Air continue to be my favourites. Fluent in other cutter languages.
