Scammers trying to get access to personal information on private computers is nothing new. The fact that the number of tools available for scammers is constantly growing, is why most people have heard about ransomware, spyware and malware.
One of the most common ways for scammers to trick users is by pretending to be a supporter from a known company, Microsoft, Facebook etc. In some cases you receive a mail that claims there is an infection or another issue, in other cases the you receive an call. What they both have in common is that they claim that your system is faulty, and they then proceed to “helping” you.
These kind of tricks have been around for many years, though in recent years a new and more advanced scam. Here malicious code is used to lock the system, and at the same time offers to help with the condition IF the user just buys a new program. In many of these cases buying, the program only installs even more malicious software on your system, and then a new program is needed again. In effect this cycle can continue for many different programs, unless the malicious code is removed by an professional or an antispywareprogram.
When it comes to fraud and scammers, it is crucial that you never pay for any kind of “services”.
What do you do then?
