Re: internet security

Hello @shazza64 One of my local customers received a call in the same manner as you did, which was absolutely nothing more than a con. Norton will NEVER call you to tell you your machine is infected. Norton antivirus should take care of the reporting of issues for you. Secondarily, the Norton product you purchased from E-bay was most likely a scam as well. Your caller was most likely tied to the purchase you made. For the sake of seriousness have you contacted Norton Support to validate your product purchased from Ebay is legit? You can also do that through chat as well.
