    Hi Cicely

    This issue is becoming more serious every time it is posted, and telling users not to worry is unacceptable. There is something seriously wrong here. Either Iobit's helpline is being hi-jacked, or Iobit are unable to control their so called Support Partner. I am extremely concerned about this whole business, and it's impact on the reputation of Iobit and the Forum.
    The second number which User Lori mentions ( i1- 844-219-1732) is highlighted as a Scam, see this Link
    The most worrying part about this is that Iobit do not appear to be dis-associating themselves from this practice/harassment but instead are issuing explanations. This issue needs to be dealt with definitively and finally and all necessary steps taken to prevent other users from being subjected to this harrowing experience.
    To err is Human. To really mess things up you need a PC.

          Hi,

          If you received these kind of calls, do not provide any of your personal data. They might be phishing your identity. The same with emails. Do not click any unverified links.

          Cheers!

                    Scammers often pretend to be someone you trust, like a government official, a family member, a charity, or a company you do business with. Don’t send money or give out personal information in response to an unexpected request — whether it comes as a text, a phone call, or an email.

                      The number we called was one of the ones you recorded in your answer to me. The number that she called us from after my significant other hung up on her isn't both of the numbers you recorded. It was: 1-844-219-1732! So this currently has me considerably more stressed at this point! How would I realize she doesn't at present have an entrance to my PC? No, I have not had the spring up since yet am examining my PC again when I shouldn't need to. I filtered it the previous evening after everything was said and done and today needed to do likewise. Indeed, we have an old PC, can't support that. I will check as regularly varying, yet, I simply am awkward with what occurred and that she called us from a number not recorded. Would you be able to affirm that the number she called us from is with your organization?
