You don’t often get to witness a crime taking place or hear what a scam artist tells someone to convince a person to hand over money. We wanted to share the recording of an actual phone call with a scammer and what they say to make you trust them, fear that they might have a virus and get you to trust them to fix your computer. Senior citizens are the primary target of this kind of scam.
Please kind in mind:
- Microsoft or Microsoft text support will never call you
- The IRS will never email or text you
- Your anti-virus software does not display an 800 number to call when you’re infected
IF IN DOUBT? JUST HANG UP THE PHONE!
