Recently we've heard of people getting unsolicited 'bogus' call of a "computer problem"
that they saw you were having. Please do not to fall for these tactics. Don't trust these
cold call claims or give your personal information, and hang up & ignore the caller. Sorry
to say, we have heard that some get multiple calls & they may be rude. Or you may also
see something similar in a pop-up ad. If you wish, you can call your computer company,
or Internet provider directly, or notify the FTC as in our article below. Please remember
that legitimate companies do not display pop-up warning such as this. Consider
discussing your scam call or ad you saw with someone else, you may help them spot it
as well. If you need help, come visit us at 301 East 1st St, Suite 7.
Keep tech support strangers out of your computer
Excerpt from: March 7, 2019 - by Lisa Lake, Consumer Education Specialist, FTC
If you search online for a computer help, your online search can lead you straight to scammers who
scare you into thinking your computer is in dire need of repair...and then sell you costly security software
that you don't need.
Here's an example. There were persons that bought key words on Google that let them target people
searching for how to recover lost passwords. You'd fill out an online form and give your contact
information. Then, says the FTC, these telemarketers would call and ask to get online access to your
computer - supposedly to check for problems. Once they were in, the caller would show you fake
"evidence" of viruses or other threats that, they said, had to be removed right away.
Then came the sales pitches. these people allegedly got others - many of them older adults - to pay
hundreds of dollars for unnecessary repairs and maintenance programs. If you find yourself in a similar
situation, here are some steps you can take:
- If you're looking for tech support, go to a company you know and trust, or get help from a
knowledgeable friend or family member. If you search online for help, search on the company name plus
"scam," "review," or "complaint."
- If you get a phone call you didn't expect from someone who says there's a problem with your
computer, hang up.
- Never call a number in a pop-up that warns you of computer problems. Real security warnings will
never ask you to call a phone number.
- If you think there's a problem with your computer, update its security software and run a scan.
If you spot a tech support scam, tell the FTC: www.ftc.gov/complaint.

Remember, if you get a pop-up, unsolicited call, or spam email or any other urgent message about a virus
on your computer please:
-Don't call the phone number or click on the link
-Don't send any money or make a wire transfer
-Don't pay with a gift card (one of the ways to get payment from you)
-Don't give out your bank account info, credit card or other payment
-Don't give control (remote access) of your computer
