Let’s be straightforward – “tech support” scammers can be a real pain in the ass. Scammers can lock out users’ machines and steal their private data. Scammers are the reason IT pros have to deal with too much suspicion on the client’s part when trying to provide remote technical assistance. Lastly, scammers can damage vendor’s reputation by using this or that product for fraudulent purposes.
Keeping our customers and average PC users safe from scams or any other threats is a priority for us at Techinline. Some time ago we published an article on how to spot typical tech support fraud, as well as shared our own experience in fighting “Microsoft support” scammers. Nevertheless, scammers are here to stay, at least for now. As we have thousands of users worldwide, it’s almost impossible to proactively identify which ones are using our product for unsolicited purposes. However, we’ll continue educating our users about “Microsoft support” scams to ensure that issues of this sort are on the decrease.
We’d like to share another real life story, and we do hope that this will help our customers, their clients, and other businesses fight back against “Microsoft support” scams. [Read more…] about Another Fight on “Microsoft Tech Support” Scams
