Hi maybe im bieng thick but am not sure what this Australian who rang at 5.30 tonight was on about he said he was from McAfee and was trying to sell Security for my website which would give it greater traffic and as such more customers, about this point I said goodbye and hung up.

Is it a scam?

I got a call exactly like that several months ago. Some people are hard to get off the phone... maybe I should have strung him along for an hour or two!
