  3. Phone call from some purporting to be a Microsoft technician

    Unsolicited phone calls, browser pop-ups and
    emails (aka
    Tech Support Scamming
    ) from "so-called Support Techs" advising
    "your computer is infected with malware",
    “All Your Files Are Encrypted"
    and other
    fake "alert messages"
    has become an increasing common and prolific scam tactic over the past several years. The scams may involve web pages with screenshots of
    fake anit-virus software displaying warnings of bogus malware infections and fake

    BSOD
    which include a tech support phone number to call in order to fix the problem. More nefarious scammers will talk their victims into allowing them remote control access of the computer so they can install a

    Remote Access Trojan
    in order to steal passwords and other sensitive personal information which could then be used to access bank accounts or steal a person's identity.

    The caller, email or browser warning alert may claim to be affiliated with Microsoft or
    Windows Support. However, there have been reports of scammers claiming to be affiliated with major computer manufacturers such as
    Hewlett Packard, Lenovo and Dell, familiar security vendors like
    Symantec, Panda and McAfee, and even popular
    ISPs.

    Microsoft does not contact users via web page messages, phone or email and instruct them to call tech support to fix your computer.
