Tech Support Calls plaguing elderly in our Area, put the phone down! Scam Alert!.
Our leading technology expert ,”put the phone down”
Within the last few months Handyboys Technology had a string of support calls from the area including Lakeville CT and Sharon CT, from people claiming to be from Microsoft.com or some technical organisation.
They use forceful advertising popup to trap up into calling, this can be easily fix by turning off your machine or device and not returning to that site.
When you fall for their tricks and call the hotline, you’ve gone too far now they have your number.
They will tell you all sort of foreign lingo (language) “your firewall is open” “your Credit Card could be available view publicly” how about this one “you have a virus!”
To an elderly person these words could be devastating especially since they have nothing to do but surf the internet all day.
“I know at lease 50 grandparents that depend on their devices daily”.
Those who knows, “TEACH”! HBE urge you to call up your Friends and Family, and let them know that this is a big SCAM!
If you suspect that your machine was compromise seek professional help from your local repair specialist.
If your credit card infomation was given already to the culprits, call the bank and let them know.
