Are you not familiar with the infamous Tech Support scam?
Let me clear it out briefly for you, Tech Support scam, basically these are the groups of scammers who targets the users of Microsoft Windows all over the world. These scammers made contact with Windows users via voice calls and then simply tell them that their Windows computer or system has been infected by a malware and virus.
Now many of you might be thinking that why victims didn’t note down the number? As the number from which they make the call to their victims remains unknown, hence, they manage to trap their victims easily.
However, after calling their victims, they claim that they work for the tech giant companies like Microsoft, Google or another big tech companies and then they simply convince the victims just by saying that they have a quick “fix” to their “problem.”
Hold on; it is not finished yet, as after this when victim gives them access to their system they simply install malware which is usually a spying software or a keylogger. As this software simply allows the scammers to trick the user out of a massive amount of cash.
