The call is made to you and they ask to get access to your computer. They claim to be with Microsoft and that your computer has been hacked or has viruses. They charge money for their service and tell you they can remote into your computer and fix it or them. Amazing that people are falling for this.
Once you give them access, they imbed files into your computer that will change the passwords for your machines access. They do this as a ransom incase you refuse to pay them. They all have accents, so I assume they are masking the numbers from another country. Please don’t fall for this scam. If you receive a call similar to this one, please call me immediately at 901-515-8433. I will report the numbers to the proper authorities.
And I can help you. They can’t.
