Scam Alert-Cold Calling IT Support

As if there aren’t enough scams out there, here is another one to add to the mix. There are reports of residential and business users receiving call stating they are from a “global it center” and reporting that you have been sending out viruses and it is your responsibility to stop doing this. It is a pretty elaborate scam that hooks folks in by building fear and panic.

One of the claims they use is that your “Windows Warranty” has expired and because you let it expire, this is causing your problems and you are required to fix it”.

It appears these cold calls originate in India and are routed through US numbers. If you think you may have been a victim of one of these scams please contact your local better business bureau and credit card company.
