So you are just browsing along and you come across a site that pops up with warnings that say things such as ” WINDOWS HEALTH IS CRITICAL
DO NOT RESTART” or “Please contact Microsoft technicians Toll-Free” and list a phone number that you can contact these NON Microsoft scammers at. I put together this video to show how this scam works. First, it all starts with you calling them and here is a video showing how that call goes…
So as you can tell from the video the first thing they say is that they are the Window Help Department and the lies just keep going from there. This purpose of this whole scam is simply to take you money while pretending to load software that will fix imaginary issues.
The good news is there is a solution to this problem and it is easy. Just open task manager and close the browser or reboot your computer, that is it. Think of it this way, would you fall for a scam where some one went door to door and said there was a problem with you computer and they would fix it for $249? Just because this popped up in your browser does not make it any more legitmate.
Check out this video to see =just how easy this is to avoid.
