Do not accept calls from a so-called Alex from Microsoft at 718-233-6301, who claims that Microsoft has been monitoring your computer because your computer has a virus that is "messing up" Microsoft's server. The so-called caller from telephone 718-233-6301 is a cybercriminal attempting to trick his potential victims into giving him remote access to their computers. Once he has gotten remote access, he will steal his victims' personal and financial information and may use their computers maliciously.
Therefore, online users who have already been tricked, are asked to disconnect your computers from the Internet, scan them for viruses, remove programs or applications that are unknown to them. If you are not tech-savvy, have a tech-savvy friend or family member check your computer for malware or spyware the cybercriminals may have installed.
Victims should also change the passwords for all their online accounts and check the same accounts for discrepancies.
