So your computer freezes and a splash screen appears urging you to call a number that appears to come from Microsoft – what should you do
First it has not come from Microsoft – you went to a webpage that was infected through the ads on the page.I have received calls again on this and people letting these ” so called tech support ” people logon to their computer – which you should NOT DO.
Times have changed with almost 40 per cent of scams now committed over the phone and I am seeing people every week that are falling for scams on their computer.
That’s followed by email at 26.5 per cent and text messaging at 15 per cent
So what should you do?
