CYBER Security
Enthusiast - Level 2

Has anyone received a phone call from Verizon Cyber Security stating someone in Nigeria is using your email to send threatening messages? The guy gave me a spiel about this, asked me to check my email for suspicious activity and I told him I get suspicious activity all the time, that is why it is sent to my SPAM folder. Then he began asking for access to my computer. Has anyone else had this experience.  I told him, I did not call him and would not give any such access and hung up.
