Fri, 30 Sep 2016 14:41:00 +0000

Buffalo, NY (September 30, 2016)-- Better Business Bureau of Upstate New York’s Scam Tracker is receiving reports again of scammers pretending to offer tech support to unsuspecting users.There are three types of tech support scams. The first is a phone call from a “specialist” at a computer company. The second type is a pop up on your computer, wanting you to call a number to fix the “problem” your computer has. Ransomware is the third type. These programs lock your computer and demand payment to release your files. Be careful not to give in to this request. You could be a target again because the scammers know they have someone who will do what they say.Reports to BBB’s Scam Tracker: Send to KindleSubscribe to my blog via Kindle![...]
