To start off, I am 17 years old, so not really the kind of person one would expect to write a report. I have, however, been repeatedly harassed by an online company called Security Shield. It is a company which gets into your computer, scans your files for viruses and the like, and purports to fix and clean up your computer for a one-time fee of $79.95. It is, of course, not a real deterrent against malware, and is in fact maware itself. All it will do is take your money, completely screw up your computer, and perhaps steal your credit card information. It was Sunday, February 6, 2011, around 1:00 a.m., when I first encountered it. I was surfing the internet when a message popped up in the middle of my screen, telling me I had copious amounts of spyware, trojans, worms, etc. It was from Security Shield. I was quickly led to a screen that offered to fix everything for the one-time fee. Well, I don't have a credit card, and I don't want to pay $79.95, so I shut my computer down and went to bed, hoping that in the morning, Security Shield would have moved on and forgotten about me. I woke up at about 9:00 a.m. and turned on my computer. Sure enough, Security Shield was there, offering their services yet again. I quickly x-ed out of the pop-ups and decided to do some light reading on Wikipedia. I soon learned, however, that one does not finish up with Security Shield; Security Shield finshes up with you. I was deluged with a series of pop-ups until I just gave up and decided to pay their website a visit just to see what kind of annoying people I was dealing with. On the first page of Google results, I was given one link to their website. Every other result was about how to remove or uninstall it. I found this rather peculiar and checked one of them out. While reading, I came to the grim realization that Security Shield was trying to gyp me. It would not fix anything on my computer. No, instead it would actually proceed to annihilate every single aspect of my computer. Well, this isn't good, I thought to myself. By this point, I had figured out that Security Shield was not something I planned on buying. Next, I headed on over to their site just to see what kind of BS they were slinging. Down at the bottom of their site were reviews. I have a faint suspicion that they were written by employees of Security Shield, because it makes me want to puke at the thought that people would let themselves get screwed over, then commend the company that did it. If I'm right, and the reviews were written by employees, then that's just as bad, because the tone and message that the reviews contain make the people who are purported to have written them sound like huge idiots and exaggerated caricatures of dupes. It's as though it's not enough that the company is screwing people out of their money and destroying their computers; they have to make fun of them as well. If you receive any message from Security Shield, DO NOT BUY IT. If you have already purchased Security Shield, call up your credit card company and get rid of those charges. This is not a simple malware, this will require an expensive download of a program to get rid of it. Always research something before you buy it and you'll make things easier for the rest of us, as these kinds of operations cannot exist without people getting fooled and purchasing their services.
