Scammers are covering all the bases with the newest tech support scams. They are using phone calls, texts, emails, pop-up messages, and more to get access to your devices and money.
Posing as representatives of big-name companies, like Microsoft, these scammers try to convince you there is a problem with your electronic devices. They want you to give them remote access to your devices; plus, they want you to pay for their services with your credit or debit card.
If you receive a suspicious tech support call, or one you weren’t expecting, hang up, delete any texts or emails, and don’t click on any links or pop-ups. You can file a complaint at consumer.ftc.gov or find out more by searching the site for tech support scams.
