I was hit today over the phone by the "EVENTVWR Phishing Scam" so I just thought I'd let everyone know about it.
I was just preparing to leave when the phone rang and a frantic sounding guy with an Indian accent told me he was from "Windows Internet Security & Support" (or something like that) and said that he had been receiving information that my computer was crashing (which is has NOT been since it's brand new) and was being constantly attacked by hackers (which it shouldn't be since I have Norton Internet Security setup) and if I did not do what he insisted then my access to my computer and the internet would be inoperable within 6 hours.
What this person /persons want you to do is hit the Windows key & the "R" key to bring up the windows run menu, then they want you to type in EVENTVWR. I did not do that, instead I typed "EVENTVWR" into google and saw all the notices of the EVENTVWR scam (apparently all coming from India). I told him what I found on google and he became very irate, insisting even more vociferously that my computer would be deactivated if I did not follow his instructions. I just hung up on him after that and went about my day.
So if you get this call, don't follow his instructions.
Here's the results of the google search I did while he was talking to me on the phone: https://www.google.com/search?q=even...=1920&bih=1011
