October 2011 - RCMP warn of computer support phone Scam

There has been an increase in the number of reports concerning a phone scam in which a telephone caller will claim to be from "Microsoft Support", "Windows Support" or some similarly official sounding company name. The caller will then attempt to convince you that there is a problem with your computer. Next, they will claim to be able to repair and/or speed up your computer if you grant them remote access. You will be asked for credit card information to pay for this "service". You will then be directed to a website to download and install software that will allow remote access and control of your computer so that they may effect this "repair".

THIS IS A SCAM!

Do not give out any personal or banking information and do not install this software!

If you have been victimized by this scam it is important that your computer is checked for dangerous software such as viruses, malware, key logging or tracking software that may have been installed during the commission of this scam.

The RCMP have issued a warning to Canadians. Please click here to read the article published in The Guardian newspaper.
