Customer Question
A man named Albert...

A man named Albert from Gmail called and said my phone had been gmail had been hacked, including Facebook. He wanted me to leave my computer on so he could put in security blocks. But he wanted me to give him my bank card number and checking account #. He's not for real right.? He wants me to purchase this gmail service.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Facebook?

I don't remember? I think last week. But I have 7 Facebook accounts with my name's on them that have been compromised. I set up a new account under YOU-NEEK Designs by Miller hoping no on e could use my name.

This sounds like a Scam, there is no reason for Google to contact you, and they never call their users.

I would cease all communications with that person and contact bank or authorities if any payments have been made to him.

Let me know if you need any additional help from our end.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
