Bogus Security Alert


Bogus Security Alert

While on the Pennant Chase site I got a full screen Critical Alert for Google Chrome - It was bogus. The reason I know this is that they misspelled some words and the phrasing of the message was somewhat strange - like someone foreign. Watch out for this!!! It mentioned an attempted breach of my bank accounts and gave me a phone # to call "immediately". I ran a scan with my Webroot security system and it came up clean.

If you ever get stuff like that on your screen and it doesn't come from you security software, beware!

Re: Re: Bogus Security Alert

It was obviously a scam - I closed the window and ran a security scan that came up fine.
