Don’t Get Scammed By Call Center Phishing
Recently we have seen an upswing in the number of calls we are getting regarding Microsoft Support Call Center scam calls.
HOW IT WORKS: In this situation someone will call your phone and advise you that your computer is highly infected and that they will “help” clean your computer, they will have you visit a website where you will download and install remote access software that will give them full access to your pc. After some poking around and running commands they will inform you that the computer is badly infected and will need to be cleaned for a very high amount (between $200-$900, typically). You give them your credit card and they bill you for services that were never really needed.
