Default RCMP virus. Beware.

For anybody living in canada.

Do not fear. the GRC aren't going to stomp your yard.
Fear is a powerfull tool of an hacker or frauders. do not give in to them.
use your head, find the incohérences, get the facts straight.

heres what my friend came to me with yesterday. thinking his life was over.
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgar...scam-1.1400967

I know it seems legit when you have caught that vrus, it has the right web adress of the GRC fraud department, it has the right colors, its really like like. but thats what they call a "Scareware" its purpose is to scare you to death and force you into paying the debt you dont have. don't give in to those frauders. keep your head cool.

find mistakes.
what prooved me it was fake, for my friends sake. (the one who caught it)
- wrong city mentionned.
- the infos can easily be gotten by your browser, nothing specific to your life.
- this breaks Citizen laws by taking control of your computer.
- 3 laws mentioned without any commons between each others.
- payment in the next 12 hours or you're screwed.

these are what i found that aren't correct.
the government wouldn't make a city error.
the government wouldn't give you a weapon to fight against their case.
the government would be a lot more specific for their accusations.
the government would track you down to your house. not just thru the internet.

but most of all... the government wouldn'T put you to arrest without ever handcuffing you first.
Many of you right now thinks my friend stupid for falling for it. but you have to remember that not all of us are geeks who knows their computer stuff. he was Lucky.. he came to me as i came off the job. and that was the right thing to do. keep your head cool, talk to people around you, confirm the problem, solve it together.

to those who might see these scareware or the likes of them...
dont fall for them, think it thru.

Ha.

We have something very similar in the U.S. Here's a pic.

It's quite a few variants of it, but they all are scamware.

So your telling me that RI is the only place to for me to tell a non-threatening joke. It was in response to monts comment and didn't take the thread in a different direction. It was sarcasm to say the least and actual comments to the thread are the problem starters. This was a thread lightener. For example....

These types of scams usually work on females, little kids, and the elderly. I'm not saying all little kids and the elderly fall for these things but it does to the ones that aren't as computer savvy. Now there's a hope for our kids and elders to not get scammed so its important that we do indeed teach them about the pop up virus warnings and pop up software updates like flash and etc. Together we can really make a difference.

Snake, leave shadow alone...
Shadow, that first post of yours might have been to lighten up th emood, but if thats all you were gonna post, then it failed, cause i also saw it as a troll attempt at making funof people who get taken by those. because unlike what you may think, there are a lot more people then kids who gets taken in, my friend for instance, is almost 30. thats a full grown men there. and just because of his lack of knowledge on the subject. he thought it was real. and to be honest i'D have thought it too if i didn't think it was strange behaviour to begin with.

the reality is, this thread is for people to know it exists, to "inform" them not to fall for these.
because ignorance is what make these frauds a true problem. and ignorance can happen at all ages.

so again, snake leave shadow alone.
shadow, sometimes its just hard for us to know when you joke and when you make fun of people.
but thats the problem with trolling to begin with, hence why i dont think trolling is fun at all.
but i undersand where you were coming from.
