Tech Support Scams - Warning

By | November 10, 2017

I am getting calls on a growing malware scam.  Basically, you get a popup which blocks your screen and gives you a number to call.  Under no circumstance do you call any number they give you.  I have included Microsoft's official post on this topic with a list of spam numbers.  These scammers are looking for your credit card information and access to your computer.  Take the machine to a qualified technician immediately.  Cease all use.  If you have to hold the power button down for 5 seconds to kill the computer, do it.  Do not turn it back on until after having the system cleared by qualified people.
