I made this post earlier today... then this call just happened:
Customer: I used to have Herpa Anti-Virus, but it stopped working. I just got a pop-up from a "trojan adviser" and it was asking for my credit card info. So I put it in and nothing happened and it's still popping up.
Me: You did what?!
Customer: I gave it my credit card info....
Me: You need to call your credit card company and cancel that card or put an alert out.
Me: You just paid a virus.
Customer: I did... oh....
I've heard of this virus many times, but I've never actually encountered anyone who's paid it. I laughed for about 4 whole minutes after the call was over.
