I received so many emails about this scam I thought it was important to talk about it specifically.
A lot of our clients have been getting a call from people with (surprise surprise) an East Indian accent saying they are from Microsoft and that they’re computer is infected with a virus.
They ask the victim either A) login to their computer and download a ‘fix’ (which is actually a virus that will steal their personal passwords and financial information) or they B) ask for a credit card number to pay a small ‘techs support fee’. You can guess what they then do with all that information. They go on a shopping spree.
A few things to remember:
Looking out for you….
