So I went to Pinterest.com today…well, not exactly I accidentally dropped the “i”.
What came next was a real pin in the butt.
First, a quick redirect to www.call-computer-help.com
And yes, they then attempt to put you in a panic.
Next comes the pop-up:

Yes, they want to you call that phone number.
I had to crtl-alt-del to close the browser – again, a real pain.
They also show this window meant to further scare you:
I like how the point out at the bottom that this is just an ad.
Anyhow, this does no harm, no need to call anyone…just a real pain.
