Warning to Apple users:
CREDIT CARD SCAM ALERT! - scammers say they are with Apple tech support. Got a pop up in my internet browser on my iPhone that said http://www.advare-alerts.net potential threat/virus dectected and to call apple tech support at 1-888-223-6318 for assistance to remove it. The Indian guys on the phone (supervisors name is Alan) gives you a very convincing speech about being with Apple and that your phone has been compromised and that for a one time fee of $29.95 they will remotely access your phone to fix the problem and protect it from viruses. They collect your name, phone number and home address and even try to get you to connect to other computers in your house (to collect more of your personal info). If you do give them your credit card number they tell you the charge will show as osr web services. WARNING It is a total scam! All you need to do to get rid of the pop up message is go to your settings click on safari and clear your internet history or Go into settings, safari, advanced and clear the website data.
