    Question regarding a company Claiming to help with virus

    Hi Hana,

    You can protect yourself from any suspicious emails or messages that may be a phishing scams by following the steps below:

    • Never reply to an email that asks you to send personal or account information.
    • If you receive an email, don't click a link that supposedly take you to a company website.
    • Never open any file attached to a suspicious-looking email.
    • If the email appears to come from a company, contact the company's customer service via phone or web browser to see if the email is legitimate.
    • Search the web for the email subject line followed by the word hoax to see if anyone else has reported this scam.
