Tech Support Phone Scams

Scam AlertToday I was reminded of the scams that can go around and the tech support one is one of the most commonly used ones and is sadly still used today!

So things to look out for….

Do not  trust unsolicited calls, do not province any personal information.                                                                                                                             

Here are some of the organizations that cybercriminals claim to be from:

  • Windows Helpdesk
  • Windows Service Center
  • Microsoft Tech Support
  • Microsoft Support
  • Windows Technical Department Support Group
  • Microsoft Research and Development Team (Microsoft R & D Team)
