How the scam works?
The scammer calls the victim and pretends to help the victim protect their computer from hackers, viruses and other threats. The scammer will then ask the victim to go to a particular website and download a malicious software, which the scammer claims will protect the victim's computer.
Once the malicious software is downloaded and installed, the scammer will be able to gain access to the victim’s computer and steal their personal information.
If someone calls you claiming to represent a company, do not disclose your personal information or follow any instructions to download and install any software on your computer, instead call the company's customer service and verify the claims made by the caller.
